    Makes little difference anyway. The difficulty of recycling means the plastic will just go into landfills anyway. It's crazy.... I'm someone who WANTS to recycle but I end up having to walk 20 minutes away for the nearest recycling bins (30-35 minutes for glass recycling bins).

    The Professional Teachers Union (PTU) has disbanded after the government severed relations with it after state media attacked the organization for supporting the 2019 protests:

    They've grown the country to be as big as South Korea.

    There will be a new union just around the corner. Headed by a party official and membership mandatory.

    Well it certainly won't be a union that would fight for teachers right in that case. More like an enforcement body against teachers themselves.

    What the state's press demands, they get. This was obviously coming...
