The initiative is from the “Missão Escola Pública” movement, the same one that, about a month ago, organised the protest that gathered several hundred teachers next to the 25 de Abril bridge, in Almada.

This time, protests will be staged at various national airports, with greater incidence in the airports Humberto Delgado (Lisbon), Francisco Sá Carneiro (Porto) and Gago Coutinho (Faro).

The demonstrations are scheduled for 18:00 on April 22, with protests planned in the arrivals area of the different airports.

The objective is “to show tourists that, although the country is wonderful and has everything they need, it does not value public schools”, explained to Lusa Rui Foles, from “Missão Escola Pública”.

Rui Foles also said that despite the three main protests being planned for Lisbon, Porto and Faro, the movement wants to mobilise teachers for the remaining airports.
