Tunisian teachers are on strike today under conditions of intimidation and oppression Despite the revolution, those who struggle in Tunisia for democracy and in the case of teachers for fair funding for education are subject to mass arrests and police brutality. Not only that but the government is continuing with the same IMF driven policies of cuts and privatisation as the old Ben Ali dictatorship. Today the teachers are striking in what may well be an escalating struggle. They are appealing for international solidarity.
