occupied the Montale. The Morgagni cleared for Covid

The number of high schools occupied in Rome is updated: now there are 19, the branch office of the classical and linguistic Montale, via Paladini 6 al Portuense, has also been added. This morning, Monday 29 October, shortly after 8, a hundred students took possession of the building and dropped the inevitable banner.

The claim

“In a moment of general attack on the rights of students, teachers and ATA staff – reads the widespread claims -, of a transformation of the school that protects our interests as the last thing, we believe it is necessary not only to continue our struggle, but to generalize the participation of students and, hopefully, also of all school workers. We believe that in order to implement a substantial change, unity of struggle between students and workers, especially in schools, must be re-launched and mobilization against this school system, because alone we can win the battle but not the war “.

Morgagni evacuated for Covid

Meanwhile, the Morgagni in via Fonteiana, after five days of occupation, was evacuated by the police on the evening of Saturday 27 November. To anticipate the release, scheduled for Sunday morning “after constant negotiations with the Digos and the Dean”, the discovery of a positivity among the students who had participated in the occupation, the first case that occurred during an occupation from 6 October till today. Contact tracing was immediately triggered by the employment organizers who, as they say, “warned all those who had come into contact with the girl who tested positive and transmitted all the necessary data to the competent health authorities, which we remember to be the local health authorities and not the police, so as to be able to continue the occupation until the following day in complete safety “. But this was not the case and at about 9.30 pm, according to the students’ account, two vans showed up and knocked: “Ten minutes to get out” the warning. The state of agitation, however, will continue in other forms even if the requests of the occupants have been accepted by the school council and in the coming weeks there will be more dialogue and discussion on the main themes of the school.
