  • ACTIVISM – Worker’s Rights in Education, Hong Kong

    Date: 2006.01.23 | Category: Politics: Activism, Politics: All Posts | Response: 2

    Attending a rally on 23/1/06 with International Action, we found that our best reaction came from the teachers themselves. Every school employs Western English teachers though – aside from us – none appeared to turn out, thus, we were applauded for showing support and solidarity.
