The WFTU, on the occasion of the World Day against Racial Discrimination, wants to express and reaffirm its basic principle and stable fight against all forms of racial discrimination.
We express our deep class solidarity with the the millions of immigrant workers, the millions of refugees who are facing double exploitation, as part of the working class, but also as immigrants. All workers, whether they are foreigners or locals are class brothers and our struggles are common, no matter the nationality, race, color of skin or religion.
The WFTU calls upon the international working class, to keep expressing its solidarity with immigrants and refugees, especially now, when imperialist wars and aggression have created huge waves of refugees. Racial discrimination and other types of discrimination are created and kept alive so the monopolies, the transnational corporations, the imperialist mechanisms and the reactionary governments in order to divide workers and safeguard the interests of the capital, maintaining class exploitation. The WFTU also calls upon all workers and the toiling masses to reject and fight against all fascist and nazi mentality and propaganda that is inhuman and against the interests of the working class.
The WFTU and its affiliates and friends in more than 120 countries will keep fighting for the interests of the working class, against racial discrimination created by capitalist barbarism.
