The World Federation of Trade Unions expresses its solidarity and respect for the heroic struggle of the Egyptian people.
This struggle and the removal of the former President H. Mubarak proves that the people that fight have results.
It is now a serious matter for the workers to demand radical change of policy. To demand a workers friendly, anti-imperialist, anti-monopoly. Change of persons is not enough. We ask for the change of policy.
The USA and the EU are now hypocritically claiming that they are with the Egyptian people. It’s them who were supporting the anti democratic regime for 30 years. They are those who did and do everything to divide the Arabic world and to promote the New Middle East.
The WFTU on behalf of the 80 million members supported and supports the struggle of the workers in the Arab world for democracy, freedom, and trade union rights. WFTU supported and supports the struggle of the Arab people for ending of the Israeli occupation in the Arab territory and the ending of all the imperialist invasions.
