Rete nazionale Noi Restiamo e Opposizione Studentesca d’Alternativa
Noi Restiamo is a national organization of students and young workers – OSA (Alternative Student Opposition) is a national organization of middle school students
After six months of closure, the public school reopened in the most dramatic possible conditions: no serious and structural investment, no guarantee of quality and safe teaching for students, workers and families, uncertainty reigns while the risk to health is serious and concrete.
Faced with this situation we felt it necessary to put in place a rapid, strong and participatory response. With this conviction, we have promoted the successful convergence of the country’s main conflicting trade unions (USB, Cub, Unicobas), which launched the two-day strike, mobilisation and agitation on 24 and 25 September for the ransom of the public school system, against a government opposed to the interests of students and workers.
The two days saw the streets take to the streets in the main cities of Italy (especially in the centre and in the north, because in the south schools reopened in some cases on 28 September), with the support of trade unions, students and movements, among which the No Tav Movement stands out.
The characteristics of the mobilisation can be summarised in three points:
– Opposition to the Minister of Education Azzolina, whose resignation is demanded, and to the Conte government.
– An open break with the political and trade union forces of the left, recognised as the main subjects embodying the class project of the European Union.
– Enthusiasm in countertendency to the widespread feeling of discouragement present in the country’s antagonistic youth and movement realities.
Starting from this first mobilization of the school world, a national assembly has been promoted for next October 10th in Rome to organize the next steps of the protest.
