Lithuania is being shaken by an unprecedented teachers strike, which has now entered its fourth week and is causing severe anxiety, distress and panic among the ruling class and its political representatives. Already, Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis has been forced to sack not only the hated Education Minister, Petrauskienė, but also two other Ministers: for Culture, and the Environment.

We have receieved this letter from Lithuania from one of our readers. The letter explains the situation in Lithuania, with austerity packages carried out at the expense of the working class and how capitalists have benefited from cheapening labour and attacks on the welfare state.
