Global Chat Meeting to Coordinate the GLOBAL EDUCATION STRIKE together [11am EST/ 4pm UTC/ 5pm CET]

Nov.11th: Global Chat Meeting

This will be the final chat meeting before the GES kicks off!! So make use of it to get questions you might have clarified and make final coordinations.

All interested and identifying with the struggle against the increasing commercialisation of education and for free emancipatory education anywhere on this planet are invited to participate in this chat meeting to update each other on local developments in connection with the GLOBAL EDUCATION STRIKE [Nov.14-22] and finalise coordinations together!

During previous chat meetings participants from around the world already agreed on a common timeframe for the strike and some basics regarding the framework. In particular it was agreed to use the international joint statement - besides this call to action - as the basis for the Global Education Strike.
