> 155 firemen spent their ninth day on a hunger strike in Caceres, Spain.
The Press Secretary of the National Committee CNT has requested national
and solidarity for the fireman.
The CNT reports that the is situation is similar to the strike of the
municipal crane (tow-truck) operators of ACUSSA in Seville and it is being
repeated in Cáceres.

The social democratic Socialist Workers Party (PSOE) and the participating
unions on the company committees do not support to them. The hunger strike
that is putting at risk the life of one hundred fifty and five firemen.
Cáceres delegates beileve it is possible thatthat ten firemen could be
hospitalized by weeks end. The CNT will not tolerate the insensitivity
by the PSOE and the other trade unions.
During the last union elections the other unions have signed a number of
agreements. The workers felt betrayed by the position adopted by these
unions. These workers went on to form self-organized assemblies.

This way CNT entered completely the conflict, The way the CNT works is the
same in all strikes and conflicts.The workers carry out their work and
decisions by means of the assemblies and without union elections.
the CNT notices that different types of protests and solidarity can follow
one another.Given the CNT-AIT's presence in the whole the State and the
rest of the world by means of the I.W.A. (the International Association of
Workers), the CNT at state level was ready to fight and call upon
throughout the cacereña in support of the firemen,
The CNT hopes that the situation does not reach a dramatic situation
that be
caused by a hunger strike.
