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 [Oct. 18 + Nov. 14-21] and continue coordinations together!

Among others the focus will be on the ideas of pre-GES activities as well as the proposal to extend the GES by at least one day.

Pad used for the chat meeting: (feel free to contribute)

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