Teachers strike amid unprecedented disaster

Around 150,000 teachers in Yemen are believed to have gone on strike to demand payment of unpaid wages. Some teachers have not been paid since October 2016. This strike is the direct result of the brutal Saudi led invasion of the country in the last two years. The conflict shows no sign of abating while the humanitarian disaster is on the brink of becoming the world’s worst famine. In latest developments, the Saudi led coalition is on the verge of a major split with main ally, the UAE, developing its own allies on the ground in South Yemen.
