Support our Teachers Teach-In (2)

More than 500 people rallied on the steps of the Scarfe Building/Faculty of Education UBC at noon today in a show of support for BC’s public school teachers. Speakers from student, faculty, staff unions spoke out in support of the teachers. Vancouver teacher, Paul Orlowski, echoed many speakers when he called attention to the vested interest of Campbell and his business buddies. Teachers are standing up for a civil society in which opposition to an unjust law is a just action, Orlowski commented. The leaders of the three UBC CUPE locals spoke strongly in support of the teachers. They reminded the university that there are over 5,000 CUPE workers at UBC.
