The World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU) expresses its solidarity with the workers and people of France who are fighting against the policy of high prices and excessive taxation of the French government and at the same time are protesting against the anti-labor policies of the European Union and the IMF. The international class-oriented trade union movement joins its voice to that of the working youth in France, with the homeless, the unemployed, the new-poor, immigrants for a world without capitalist exploitation.
The police state and state violence highlight the role of the state and the goals of the bourgeoisie. President Macron’s maneuvers to weaken protests through false and hypocritical social dialogues should not trap the working class and the people. The class unions, the class-oriented vanguard can significantly help the people masses, leaving their own mark, giving the orientation, the content and the appropriate forms of struggle, isolating the neo-fascist and racist elements, in order to strengthen the struggle and the anti-capitalist claims.
Long live internationalist solidarity!
The WFTU Secretariat
