Dali primary school teachers will stage a two-hour work stoppage on Monday to demand the immediate relocation of the two asphalt plants in the area.

The protest will be held at 7.30am in collaboration with the parents’ association of the school, members of which are concerned for the health of their children, and the state primary teachers’ union Poed.

The move was announced following a Nicosia district court decision suggesting the two asphalt plants in Tseri and Yeri will continue their operation pending their relocation to another community.

Teachers, students and parents will gather outside the school at 8.30am to demand the intervention of the president to set a final timetable for the immediate and final relocation of the asphalt plants.

According to the complainants, the plants were scheduled to relocate to Vasiliko in February but following complaints from the nine communities surrounding that area the move was put on hold.
