The World Federation of Trade Unions expresses its solidarity with the working class of Greece that today is struggling against the SYRIZA – ANEL government and the draft law that filed in parliament, attacking to the right of striking.
The government which is composed by the ”left-wing” SYRIZA party and the right-wing, racist and nationalist ANEL party, based to the recent general politic election govern the country with the 20% of the electoral body and demand, with this draft law, 50% of a trade union members to declare a legitimate strike.
SYRIZA-ANEL govern the country with 20% but demand 50% for strike!!!
For these anti-labor policies, the SYRIZA-ANEL government has again received congratulations from Troika, the IMF, the European Union and the Greek Capitalists.
The World Federation of Trade Unions supports the demonstrations held today by PAME in all the cities of Greece. We support all employees who live and fight against the anti-unions and anti-democratic policies of the Greek government.
We join our voice with all the unions that are reacting to the blocking of the right of Strike.
The right of workers to strike is a sacred weapon. It is a conquest of the World Working Class and is earned by workers’ blood rivers in every corner of the World.
Today, at a time when the capitalist system is rotten, the international bourgeoisie, together with the nomenclature of International Organizations and the complicity of reformist trade union leaders, have opened a debate within the International Labor Organization aimed at the abolishment of the right to strike.
The Greek government of SYRIZA-ANEL is hurried to be from the former who declare allegiance and engagement in these plans; Is hurried to show the way to all capitalist governments.
We call on the members of the World Federation of Trade Unions, all the militant trade unions to actively express their solidarity with PAME and all the workers of Greece, demanding the withdrawal of this dirty anti-labour draft law. This fight is about ALL.
What was won by blood – It will not abolish by any government’s pencils
