The European Struggle To Defend Public Education and Against Social Cuts
Video with Irmi Voglmayr and Karl Fischbacher
The attack on public education and public services is taking place in Europe as well as the US. There have been mass student protests and growing labor mobilization against social cuts and the destruction of public education. University Lecturer Irmi Voglmayr will report on the students’ protests and occupations in Vienna. Trade unionist (Public Service) Karl Fischbacher who is also founder of LabourNet Austria will show videos on European strikes and the role of the trade unions.
RESULTS OF EUROPEAN LABOR STRUGGLES:
1. Universal health care for all paid for with tax dollars in all of Europe, including Germany where it has existed for 127 years.
2. No death penalty in Europe, as well as most of the rest of the world.
