On the occasion of the student struggles that are gaining strength at this time in Britain, the National Assembly of Students – Free (ANEL) sends, from Brazil, its unqualified support.
In the context of global economic crisis governments everywhere do not hesitate to penalize public education and our social rights in favor of the profits for banks and companies. In this sense, the arrival on the scene of the British student movement can encourage workers across Europe to go to the streets to defend their rights.
In Brazil, the ANEL hopes the example from our friends in Great Britain encourages our student movement for the next year. After the government of Lula da Silva’s election Dilma [the new president] has introduced the plan to remove pension rights and a wage squeeze. Along with CSP-CONLUTAS*, our organization is preparing a major effort for the unity of the movement to address this social scenario in 2011.
Count on our solidarity until the final victory.
