Teachers meeting in Swaziland are planning a strike over government plans to cut their pay 3000 members of the Swaziland National Association of Teachers (SNAT) held a conference at the weekend in which they warned the government that there would be revolution in that country  owing to government corruption. The Swaziland Times reports that one delegate warned the government:    "This is the time we have to regroup. In fact, we have to stand up now and fight the enemy. The enemy here is the system of governance. Change is inevitable in the country. Let the government consider happenings in Libya, Yemen, Tunisia and Egypt. Don’t say such things cannot happen in Swaziland. A revolution is an easy thing." The executive of the union had met with representatives from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) who told them that public servants' salaries were unlikely to be paid this month. In a press release the IMF reports that it has advised the government to raise taxes and cut public spending as well as increase its privatisation programme - the same prescription which they dish out to most countries in the Global South with disastrous results for the people of those countries - in particular the poor and those who rely on public services. The press release goes on to say that they' also encouraged the authorities to hold discussions with trade unions and reach an understanding on ways to address the problem of the wage bill.' The government has also  not paid in some pension contributions and other remittances have not been paid. The teachers are organising a nationwide strike with the aim of forcing out the government. 69% of the Swazi people live below the poverty line.
