Political fishermen throw their nets and hooks to fish the protests!

Political fishermen throw their nets and hooks to fish the protests!

No one should be surprised. We, the Albanians, already have thirty years of experience of appropriating protests and notarizing them and receiving their benefits from politics. In most cases, they are the fruits of the backstage of the political leaders who prepare the scenario, play the threads, weave the intrigues, write the mise-en-scenes, do the dress rehearsals, put them on the stage and light them according to their goals, where they care, it is enough to benefit increase in propaganda actions, stimulate riots and increase dissatisfaction among social strata and groups, that, look, they all join us. The people are with us and we are with the citizens. In order to appropriate the fruits of the protests to give them adrenaline, the spirit of the opposition starts in the first place with the ownership of the organizers of the protests. Evaluating the prostats, as sure prey, our political leaders, like fishing professionals in any habitat, where a small revolt, opposition, request or protest starts, for a painful event or any form that appears, they have their hooks and nets ready for you thrown at the protesters, not because they care about their demands, because they feel sorry for them, but with the sole purpose of using this product ready to be used as a weapon against the government. So far the political leaders declare that we are in our right. Thus, the protests are like experiments in a test tube. The opposition has an obligation and a mission to take advantage of anyone's grievances, it is enough to grapple with the mill of their party. The goal is understandable. To use them in the interest of propagandistic scenarios against those in power to take the flag of the revolution, even if in miniature, to direct hatred to the opponent to make it difficult for them to run the economic and political life in the country. Exploitation of citizens' grievances, even for political reasons of the day, without any intention of solving the demands of those who came out on the streets, cannot be blamed if it was real, truly motivated by efforts for important solutions or economic problems that are related to salaries and investments and financing in the sectors where the protest is taking place. It was learned that university lecturers would start the protest with numerous demands, the main one being a salary increase with a three-digit target, i.e. fifty percent or somewhere more than 200-300 euros, attaching to the request for a salary increase also the auxiliary staff to lure and unite them as well as to appear inclusive, they immediately extended their hands, threw their nets quickly to fish like all these years. First, Berisha of "Re-establishment" came out in support of the lecturers and as a former prime minister, he called the 15 percent salary increase, where the university will also be counted in this addition in accordance with the law, as cynical. Wit and mockery. Let's not forget that today we are in the center of a global crisis, where the world's largest economies have been shaken and stopped. It is known that salary is the main element, the basis for increasing the well-being of citizens, from workers to professors. Even sharper and more necessary is this increase today in the conditions of the cost of living after the conflict that Russia has undertaken against Ukraine, a war that has skyrocketed prices and significantly increased inflation. This situation definitely requires drastic and very efficient measures on the part of the state that the citizens, Albanian citizens, must feel the hand and support of the state with efficient measures, where of course the salary occupies a special place. We have nothing to do with university lecturers. They are within their right to demand a doubling, why not a tripling of salaries and the fulfillment of all the demands that they deem fair. This is also for the merit they have in bringing out student qualities?! Before them, the students asked for a bonus of one euro. We don't even have anything! Yes, the chosen moment is not normal. The corps of pedagogues is part of this society and lives in this country. It is assumed that they are the most educated group and know very well how to calculate, also referring to other social categories that are paid much less than them. In the end, everyone has the right to a better life and higher income. The state must commit step by step to support all the layers in need, where of course professors are at the top for the degree of difficulty and the extraordinary role they have for the education of the younger generations. This request is based on the intervention of the opposition to show that they are close to them, attentive, compassionate, and in all-round support for their demands of any form. This is where the political interventions begin, who seek to absorb the dissatisfaction of the lecturers for not meeting their demands, which they declare that they will fight to win, by boycotting the auditoriums. The teachers' unions base the motivation of the protest on the low salaries which are insufficient and in the conditions of price increase and inflation. For a lecturer who has just started work, the salary is sixty thousand lek. For lecturers with titles, it goes up to eighty-one thousand and more. It is necessary to increase the salaries according to the calculation made by them. This is how the protest speakers argued. What about politics? For the two leaders in the coalition, the demands of the pedagogues are legitimate and completely possible, so they order a solution as soon as possible. The protests should be as harsh as possible. For the president of PL, Ilir Meta, the demand is quite possible and the government should solve it. With the newspaper "Voice of the People" in the photo, Meta, boasts that when he was prime minister of the socialists, before converting to the right, he increased the salary of pedagogues, fifty percent!? Dakort raised it that much. This is known by teachers and citizens. We are talking about when Meta was 24 years old and the salary for a lecturer did not exceed four to five thousand lek. The doubling in absolute value is zero compared to today's salaries, which go up to 200 thousand lek for special categories of lecturers. Until a few days ago, the education unions were in deep slumber. The news about the protests aroused more emotion in the opposition than in the pedagogues themselves. The government made its offer. Similarly, rectors to participate with the income provided by them to join the government's decision to increase the salaries of our dear teachers. This figure for a salary of eighty thousand lek is said to be an additional forty thousand lek salary and so on, increasing each person's salary based on what he receives today for the work he performs. Berisha from the luxurious office of "Reestablishment" gave signs and encouraged the lecturers to continue and deepen the battle with the government to force it to accept the request for a significant salary increase. When Berisha was in power, these pedagogic protestors did not even dare to protest because the law did not "allow" them and professional ethics prevented them. If anyone dared to break the orders of the "Berisha" government, they would be thrown into the street. dismissal and each of them was accused of being a crutch of the opposition of the time. Today this fear does not exist. And very well. Everyone is free to act according to their conscience and interests to be evaluated with a dignified salary. No one pursues and persecutes them for coming up with taxing and ultimate demands, asking for subjective salary increases, even in the example of their colleagues in Kosovo. The state does not submit to ultimatums and cannot solve everything by pressure. Even the protesters, teachers, are citizens of this country. They live and work in these twenty-eight thousand square kilometers. As the most qualified individuals in society, they must understand that wage growth follows a well-studied path. The state is obliged to look at other layers of society. How do they live with the salaries they receive? The young people? Pensioners? This is not about equality in wages, but about distribution of income in a balanced way, since otherwise the parameters in the reports, income - expenses, are seriously affected. The opposition is eager for protests. He searches for them with candles wherever they appear. To strawberry farmers. Of apples. Bostani. Fishing. Wherever a flame is lit, no matter how minimal. The opposition leaders want to fill October, since September passed in sleep. They show that the revolution is brewing. We administer popular grievances, they declare. And not only are they selling it as their product, they are trying to present it as a movement that has oppositional yeast. And so, by absorbing the antibodies, they contaminate and poison them badly. They totally devalue them. They alienate them and do not let them be organic, original, movement of social groups. Even the most original protests, even when they are of students or today of teachers, just like the children of the closed kindergarten in Tirana, for everything, they, the masters of appropriation of everything, camps of theft of revolts, fishermen of politics, cast their nets hooks to fish protests!
