TEACHERS PROTEST THROUGHOUT SERBIA
At noon of Feb. 13, teachers protests were held simultaneously in towns throughout Serbia. Out of 2,200 schools in Serbia, 1,800 are on strike. The teachers are demanding higher wages and their outstanding salaries. More than 2,000 teachers from Novi Sad sent an open letter to the Serbian Premier Mirko Marjanovic, protesting because government had no ears for their just demands.
