    One of the five teachers who started a hunger strike

    The five jobless teachers who attempted suicide on September 16th, and who are still striking in the Regional Education Commission of Kasserine, began a hunger strike on September 20th.

    As the new regional commissionner, Mnawer Nasri, was appointed yesterday September 21th, he visited the teachers in order to understand and meet their requests as seen in this video(in Arabic).

    During the meeting, the two sides discussed the problems that the 5 striking professors are facing.

    Also, the education minister, Taieb Baccouche, declared on a TV show on Hannibal TV, that the strikers attacked the regional education  commissioner and beat him.

    Salem Salmi, the individual speaking on behalf of the five strikers refuted the declaration of the education minister and declared: “We, the strikers based in the Regional Education Commission of Kasserine, listened to the statement of the Education Minister, Taieb Baccouche. We were surprised by the news that reached him, and we formally refute what he said. We had a meeting with the regional commissioner that lasted more than 30 minutes which was recorded on video. He was neither attacked nor humiliated; we welcomed him, we talked to him about our problems and he listened to us.”
