  • Teachers’ Strike in Palestinian Authority a Sign of Greater Discontent – Amira Hass
    A teachers’ strike has brought more people into the streets than any protest against Israel over the past five months. Last Tuesday, an estimated 20,000 people attended a teachers’ demonstration in Ramallah. This Tuesday the PA security services set up rings of checkpoints to prevent the teachers from attending another demonstration.
    The demonstrators see the unfair distribution of the national income. They see the excessive allocations to the security services, the waste and corruption, the preference given to cronies and the exorbitant salaries of senior officials. (Ha’aretz)
