“There is another way we can teach, inspire and work with our young people to ensure that everyone gets the most out of their education – it’s just a shame I had to go half way round the world to it see it.” Mari Burton, secondary school history teacher, said after visiting Cuba on the NUT delegation in October half-term.

Justice for Columbia

News
Free Colombian Political Prisoners
There are currently hundreds of political prisoners in Colombia’s jails.
They include numerous trade unionists, student activists, community and indigenous leaders, human rights defenders and academics – all imprisoned for their opposition to the Colombian regime. Most are jailed without trial, though in the few cases in which people are convicted they often face up to 40 years in prison for ‘rebellion’ – a trumped-up charge that the authorities use against their opponents.
