AMMAN — After a series of arrests of a number of activists and teachers during the past few days, the suspended Teachers’ Syndicate (JTS) launched an electronic campaign through social media platforms expressing its rejection of the arrests, namely with relation to the teachers, which human rights experts consider a violation of the Jordanian constitution, according to Amman Net.اضافة اعلان

The campaign carried slogans and calls to stage a sit-in in front of the Ministry of Education on Tuesday to protest the suspension of its functions, in addition to demanding the freedom of teachers Anas El-Gamal and Ramez El-Batran, and to drop the charges against them.

Head of the Syndicate legal committee Basil Al-Hroub said that launching the electronic campaign is a message to decision-makers to stop restricting the syndicate’s freedoms that are guaranteed by the constitution.

Local media received hints that the sit-in would be prevented by local authorities.
