I have never thought of using my blog as a tool against the system but today I am here to show the whole world what the government of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil has been doing against us - public school teachers. We have been on a strike for 54 days, protesting against poor salaries and poor working conditions. Besides the government wants us to swallow a plan that benefits only them.I want to show how the police has been treating us - teachers - with the permission of our Governor and Mayor. We are not criminals, we don't deserve to be treated like one. See the pictures:
This video was recorded yesterday
These photos below I myself took on Sunday September 29th, 2013. I was in the protest with some friends and our daughters.
And here my friends/colleagues, our daughters and me:
I believe that Education is the root of any country. I believe in freedom of speech, in democracy and above all, I think that a country that doesn't respect its educators is a land of tears.
TODAY IS OCTOBER 11TH, 2013 AND NOW WE ARE WAITING FOR A VERDICT
OF THE JUSTICE.
