The World Federation of Trade Unions -WFTU- calls upon the trade union movement and progressive organizations of the world to act, to participate, to join us on the on September 7th 2010, International Action Day.
In 2009-2010, we live in a period of global crisis of the capitalist system. This crisis is deep and embraces all areas of the system: the economy, politics, society, culture, environment, even the personal relationships of the people. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is attacking the countries with debts and it is imposing, together with the governments of those countries, deep antilabour policies.
The hope for workers lies on the struggles, on involving young people, women, immigrants, indigenous people in these fights. In Europe, Asia, Latin America, the people march on the streets and demand.
Today everybody understands that the crisis concerns everyone. The crisis is everywhere. So the coordination should be generalized. Coordination, cooperation – Internationalism and solidarity. Not each one alone but all together, in all countries, all workers, all the unemployed. All together to fight with modern demands to respond to the current needs.
We demand now in order to get out of the crisis:
· Workers not to pay for the crisis. Dismissals to be prohibited.
· To stop the expenditure on military equipments and this money to be granted to the unemployed and the poor.
· To take action now on erasing the debts of Third World Countries.
· Free and Public health, education, food and water for all.
· Public investment for the creation of jobs. Satisfaction of workers’ current needs.
Through small and big struggles, the international working class will understand that the future of humanity can be drastically improved only through the abolition of the exploitation of man by man. Because capitalism cannot be amended!!!
Let’s join forces and voices in the mobilizations on the International Action Day,
