Volume 8, Number 9

CUZCO, PERU, August 2—Teachers from half the regions of Peru have been on indefinite strike since June 15. Thousands are marching to the capital, Lima, to demand a salary increase and repeal of the Teacher Reform Law. The tenacious men and women educational workers have blockaded roads, clashed with the police, seized public places, and even tried to take over an airport. They have the support of high school students, parents, and college students. However, the teachers must join the struggle of the whole working class. Instead of fighting for reforms, they must mobilize the masses to eliminate wage slavery and fight for communism. It’s the only way we can win a communist education for a classless society.
