Global Week of Action to reclaim education
The International Student Movement is calling on all individuals and groups to join a coordinated worldwide action. The ISM recognizes that no matter where students live, they are faced with the same profit machine that does not represent their interests and has hold on their education. This action is to protest budget cuts, outsourcing, school closures, costs of living and tuition fees.
Millions of students around the world are overwhelmed with the debt they have incurred in order to access their right to an education. These debts are a bourgeois tool to keep students out of the streets and submissive to their bosses. Debts are a political tool for the subordination of the most revolutionary age group in society.
The concerns of students are everyone’s concern. Access to a free education is a human right. And not just any kind of education, but an education that reflects the reality of our world, that generate emancipatory thinking and not the “education” that foster ideas of consumerism and submissiveness that only serve to propagate the capitalist system!
Changing the education system can help change the world! By giving students access to emancipatory thinking and ideas, by breaking the student-debt slavery, and to create a strong anti-capitalism unity among students we can take a giant step towards a better world!
Nov 17th to 22nd is the week to stand against the bourgeois and declare that “we are students not customers!”
