109. Teachers in Turkey: "We will not give up the fight for our rights"
Trade unionists in the field of education around the world are subjected to violence, arrests, torture and even murder. In highly authoritarian countries, governments want total control over the education system. Therefore, free trade unions in the education sector are often perceived as a threat.
Özgur Bozdogan from the turkish union for education workers, Egitim-sen, shares the story about mass dismissals of teachers, about a system where teachers are silenced by fear and about a teacher union that never will give up the fight for their rights.
