Teachers post pictures of themselves wearing pro-refugee t-shirts

pro-refugee-t-shirtsTeachers in Australia starting a t-shirt campaign by wearing t-shirts supporting refugees and posting pictures of themselves on Facebook wearing these t-shirts in class.

The teachers were warned by Victoria’s Education Department and Education Minister Simon Birmingham that they could face legal action and even the sack if they continue wearing the t-shirts in class.

Melbourne organiser Lucy Honan claimed some principals tried to intimidate teachers that wear these t-shirts to support the protest at offshore detention camps, however, she said they wore them outside school gates instead or wore them in class anyway.

She also claimed she is not aware of any consequences for teachers and even a primary principal wore one too.
