There is currently a pretty significant teacher strike occurring, so some people were having a peaceful rally in a nearby courtyard.

  1. are these teachers for primary school or for college? I don’t know very much about the political landscape there….are they unionized? very interesting.

    • It is the public elementary school teachers. From what I understand, a few months ago, the government implemented a new system to pay the teachers, but it didn’t work out so they haven’t been paid since February. Now, they are asking for more than just money and striking for better conditions. I don’t think they are unionizing, but the mediators are drawing up a contract tomorrow, so hopefully something gets resolved!
