“Today’s militant action of the World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU) has been marked by a great success.
The signs so far prove that members and friends of the WFTU to tens of countries have organized strikes, demonstrations, protests, even theatric performances and collecting signatures, migrants protests, etc. There were heard strong demands for social security, for collective contracts, 35hours of work, and increases in wages. We declare our internationalist solidarity with the struggle of the Palestinian people and for the release now of the 5 Cuban fighters.
We condemned the policies of IMF, of the World Bank and the multinationals. We said a loud NO to the imperialist aggression. NO to the imperialists.
Thousands of workers celebrated the international day of action within the workplaces and discussed on the consequences of the capitalist crisis.
The slogan “we will not pay for the crisis of the capitalist system” was heard in many countries.
The success of the initiative of the WFTU indicates that our organization takes stable positive steps and strengthens the class, militant line through the trade unions and in the consciousness of workers. We will continue with more action.”
