The public sector secondary teachers staged a sit-in on Thursday, denouncing the failure to pass the pay scale. The protesters declared that a general strike has been declared for public secondary education as a message for the politicians.
The teachers gathered in Riad al-Solh Square, where they called on the authorities to put an end to the procrastination practiced in this regard.
For his part, MP Khaled al-Daher stressed the need to resolve this social and humanitarian issue responsibly.
“We are keen on reaching a solution that preserves your rights,” he said addressing the protesters.
