At a press conference in Vila Nova de Gaia, Porto district, the secretary general of the National Federation of Teachers (Fenprof), Mário Nogueira, guaranteed that teachers “will not be silenced”.

Mário Nogueira also announced that the teachers will make requests for meetings with all political parties, who will present a complaint to the European Commission against the “limitations imposed on the right to strike” and another complaint to the International Labour Organization (ILO).

“There will be no lack of fighting actions so that we can pressure the Government to solve problems that are massacring a profession in which there are fewer and fewer people”, explained Mário Nogueira.
