The Albanese Government must act to ensure that no school participates in next week’s proposed school strike for Palestine.
I call on education minister Jason Clare to unequivocally condemn this plan which is encouraging a Melbourne-wide school walkout.
Students should not be used as political pawns by any group. Our kids need to be in school.
This protest is not only completely unacceptable, but risks heightening antisemitic behaviour across communities.
Mr Clare must ensure that no school participates, and obtain such assurances from state and territory education ministers.
