A delegation of Colombian trade unionists from the affiliates and friends of WFTU in Colombia held a protest outside the embassy of Spain in Bogota under the International Day of Solidarity with the Greek people, called by the WFTU Colombia Team worldwide on September 22, 2011.
This Day of Solidarity was held simultaneously in several countries to reject the so-called Plan of Salvation in Greece, through which the united capitalists of Europe are transferring the crisis of the imperialist system on the backs of the people and the nation of Greece. Do not forget that this “package” of measures includes, among other outrages: massive layoffs, wage cuts, privatization of state enterprises and natural resources, measures to deepen the poverty of the Greek workers.
The presence of trade union delegations affiliates and friends of WFTU in several countries showed once again that the WFTU is a militant organization that organized and collectively responds to the attacks of capitalists to the masses of workers in any country of the World. This time it was shown that our expressions of solidarity are not just words, but they are matched with actions.
Solidarity and protest actions as part of this campaign took place in Colombia, Greece, Algeria, Spain, Brazil, Peru, Palestine, Bangladesh, Chile, Dominican Republic, India, Pakistan, Iran, Portugal, Vietnam, Nigeria, Ecuador, Italy, Bolivia.
