(en) Greece, Libertarian Thessaloniki Initiative: Strike CONCENTRATION SUNDAY 8 MAY (gr) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 5 May 2016 12:04:35 +0300


The Sunday, May 8th is day strike for hundreds of thousands of workers in the trade as the SYRIZA-ANEL government continues to satisfy the appetites of large commercial capital, to abolish the Sunday holiday. Ardent desire of course total capital and the employer is to extricate once and for one of the last labor rights of the last century. A century of great industrial battles bloody conquests. From Chicago and May 36 in Thessaloniki until today, the working class won rights through strikes, riots and revolutions. Now they want us to take back everything we fought to win. The right to leisure and relaxation to social security. To reverse this trend towards barbarism have to go forward again to the forefront in fighting class movement that will collide with the forces of capital and its political mouthpieces of.

We have no confidence in the employer-bureaucratic unionism has picked camp and is on the side of employers, of "social peace" and "we remain Europe". A Europe that condemns its people to poverty and authoritarianism while it becomes a racist fortress closing the borders to the damned of this planet, refugees and immigrants.

For all these reasons we need new Maides. The strike on May 8 is only the beginning. Workers in the trade and all the workers involved in the fighting class movement will take the case of the strike in their hands. Not because it decided GSEE, which have nothing in common there, but because the employers and government challenge at a time when it is voted the most reactionary insurance bill must take massive and decisive strike response.

The strike merger will simultaneously and class May Day demonstration grasping the thread of the great struggles of the last century to a akidemonefto term struggle to overthrow the anti-labor attack.

Strike CONCENTRATION SUNDAY MAY 8 at 10:30 a.m. TSIMISKI WITH ARISTOTELOUS

We go in strike inclusive and independent class demonstration in the city's commercial center.

We will not live like douloi.Tha fight for our labor rights with class independent labor movement.

We call on all workers and political collectives and organizations to support the strike syndiorganonontas the equally militant,.enimeronontas same time that the next meeting of the coordination is Wednesday, May 4 at 18.00 in libertarian sabot area (Gkarmpola 4 Pitt Bazaar). COORDINATION ACTION against the abolition of the Sunday holiday and "liberated" timetables

To break the window of Capitalism

In times of impoverishment of the working class and the state of exception in which they are unemployed came from the previous government, the law provides for the operation of shops for seven Sundays a year, which by decree increased to 52. "We defend the Sunday holiday! Not shop not working "was the slogan of Syriza up before the election. Nevertheless the shops will remain open for another lady AKI on 8 May. Anything that with a number of issues that would change radically with the left government, so it is on ice. We had no doubt this development already before the election, let alone now. The SYRIZA-ANEL government does nothing other than to ensure "labor peace" and to promote "national unity", a section always orchestrated by the bosses and works in their favor. Where it aims to abolish the Sunday holiday?

The abolition of the Sunday holiday and full flexible working hours is a very important part of capitalist restructuring intensified in response to the crisis. At the heart of this restructuring is the labor relations as the factor that is based on the exploitation of workers, the production of surplus value and ultimately the profits of the capitalists. It is a measure that will directly benefit mainly of businessmen trade sector and major shopping areas that foster the further accumulation of capital. But it is still another attack on labor achievements that opens the way for the further intensification and aftarchikopoiisi already bad labor relations in accordance with the prevailing spirit of full commercialization of our lives. To survive capitalism in crisis should be expanded aggressively in more and more places where until now had not been sufficiently exploited. The goal is the transformation of workers into labor machines with few rights when no work would be tame consumers. That is, the total conversion of life in a goodwill production cycle, consumption goods and capital accumulation. This is the notorious capitalist development. Anyone who thinks that this attack in his spare time workers will cease to trade is very mistaken.

The holy alliance of commercialization of our lives

This effort brings together an enlarged front forces each in its own way contributes to the common goal. The driving force is of course the capitalists and a key lever the government using the state apparatus acts as trustee of capital. This course is one of the basic functions of the state in modern totalitarianism. The role of the judiciary is also clear and distinct and a rough look at the role played in smashing to pieces of labor rights in recent years does not let the fact on which the decision of the State Council to cloud the issue. The mainstream media have taken over the role of the ideological vanguard trying to present the Sunday opening of shops as a solution to the crisis and to advertise as much as possible, at the same time showing any reaction as antisocial and harmful to workers. Particular mention should be made of the chipsterofasistikes free press tabloids who allegedly apoideologikopoiimeni and aestheticised visual content crystallize social ekfasismou as aggressive neoliberalism. Trade associations in the majority and they helped them in their own way. Initially the tergiversation of "7 Sundays and not 52," which seemed to not understand that hegemony now belongs to the bourgeois and not the same, and any change in the Sunday public holiday will not be staying there but will sway me everything. After the introduction of institutions that contribute to more flexible schedules such as the "white nights" where workers are forced to work until midnight to increase turnover. In the 'white nights' they contributed several municipalities that supported many such efforts, even mayors belonging to the left, demonstrating its role as left the capital and their potential power management system rather than the tipping force. Finally, shouting consumers who are willing to preface their breasts to shop Sunday playing the role of useful idiots who do not realize that the complete elimination of labor rights and will affect them. The importance of the fight against the abolition of the Sunday holiday

We must not forget the direct impact of the intensification of work in the lives of workers. At the same time the official unemployment rate is 26% spending time workers clipped. The concept of free time shrinks to only fit the consumption and much needed rest. The labor movement needs to understand the problem of free time as the same importance to the salary, as aspects of the same thing. Must epananoimatodotisei the meaning of free time outside and against capitalism, a time that employees use to organize their resistance to capitalist barbarism, to create their own culture, to live outside the sovereignty of the goods. The struggle against the abolition of the Sunday public holiday must beat to give an impetus to the workers' struggles and to enrich their content.

What to do

The abolition of the Sunday public holiday is not just for shop assistant but all workers. The strikes of the industry associations Sundays are open shops are necessary and should be supported, but not enough. It is necessary to horizontal coordination of larger pieces of our class, based associations, labor collectives and shapes that these strikes to obtain generalized characteristics. In this endeavor the institutional unionism and defeated logic and practices of a burden, not an ally. To win this battle, the road is one: we must destroy the functioning of the market on Sundays. With massive marches, dynamic interventions and inclusive shops, sabotage, closures of roads to create a diverse movement until you get a decision that our Sundays are not going to give away the world of the commodity. Our Sundays will use that to just have fun and talk, to fall in love and to organize the social revolution that will sweep the world of the state and capital and build freedom. On Sunday, May 8 will be in the street protesting and safeguarding, with inclusive shop, general strike has been declared, not because the said GSEE, which we explicitly and clearly in opposing sides of the class struggle, but because the abolition of the Sunday public holiday should not be imposed. Because it will resist any aggressive movement of capital, the new insurance bill, as wage and pension cuts, cutting benefits, dismantling of public health care, the price increases in basic goods, increase ticket on public transport, decisions the Supreme Court requiring workers to compensation bosses for occupational accidents, power cuts and water and first-time auctions.
