Attend Committee for Public Education meeting to fight the deadly reopening of Australia’s schools amid COVID surge | #students | #parents

The Committee for Public Education (CFPE) invites educators, students and working people in Australia and internationally to participate in an online meeting on Sunday, January 23, at 11 a.m. (AEDT).

The event, titled “No to Australian school reopenings amid record COVID infections! Educators, students, parents—join the fight for rank-and-file safety committees!” will discuss the urgent need to organise the opposition to the reopening of schools across Australia that is planned for late January and early February. Register today!

If allowed to proceed amid unprecedented COVID infections, the beginning of the academic year will see a further explosion in case numbers, inflicting suffering and death that is entirely preventable.

International scientists have repudiated media and government claims that Omicron is a “mild” virus and that children especially require no protection from infection. Nearly 800 children are now being hospitalised in the United States every day. Long COVID is causing widespread suffering, with studies suggesting up to 10 percent of all children who contract the virus develop debilitating long-term symptoms.
