TEACHERS FOR CHOICE Joins Citizens around the world on November 3 to Kick Off Worldwide Walkouts to Demand a Return to Freedom and Democratic Principles

NY, NY – TEACHERS FOR CHOICE (TFC) will join organizations and individuals across the globe in a worldwide  “walkout” of work and school by calling in sick, taking a personal day, or just walking OUT to gather in protest of the unprecedented loss of freedom that has occurred the world over since the COVID pandemic began. Parents will also be pulling their children out of school for the day to protest the many restraints that have applied directly to children.

“We’ve gotten thousands in the streets before,” said Michael Kane, founder of TFC. “The police, firemen, and sanitation workers got 10’s of thousands in the streets. Now we all need to be in the streets together – teachers, educators, nurses, firm

Many are now emboldened by reports of a recent “walkout” of Southwest employees resulting in over 2,000 flights cancelled, followed by a peaceful protest of the company’s planned COVID vaccine mandate by hundreds of current and former employees at Love Fields in Dallas. Just one day after the protest, management dropped plans to put unvaccinated employees on unpaid leave. Nurses, doctors, teachers, police officers, firefighters, sanitation workers and other employees all over the country facing mandates are being forced to choose between their livelihood and protecting their health. In states where the mandate deadlines have passed, many refused to comply and walked away from their careers. 

Just days after New York City announced mandates for firefighters, police officers, sanitation workers and other city employees, a massive protest occurred with estimates of over 50,000 people attending. Sanitation workers are engaging in civil disobedience, by refusing to work, as trash is seen piling up in the streets of Manhattan and the boroughs. Meanwhile, the city of Chicago, facing similar mandates, had police officers protesting and ultimately forced into unpaid leave over similar mandates. All over the country, people are fighting back on the streets and in the courtrooms against these mandates. 

Announcement of the protest comes following Tuesday’s decision by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee’s (VRBPAC) decision to authorize Pfizer’s Emergency Use Authorization COVID vaccine for children ages five to eleven. The vote to approve authorization of this vaccine, despite overwhelming evidence that COVID does not pose a threat to young people, is causing even more unrest among those concerned with the safety of COVID vaccines in all age groups. From mid-December, 2020 through October 15, 2021, the U.S. government database, the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) received 818,044 reports of injury following COVID vaccination including 17,128 deaths
