(en) [Spain] 1 st of May: Taking the streets By ANA (ca, pt) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 26 Apr 2018 08:37:28 +0300

For ten years we have lived in this crisis of the capitalist system, a crisis that is nothing but another tool of the great employers, the multinationals and the bankers, with the complicity of a corrupt political system, to increase their enormous profits always at the expense of the rights of citizens, and especially the working class. This crisis is really a big fraud. ---- We have been in a situation of social emergency for 10 years, where not only are people without work below the poverty line, but that more than 14% of people with work are poor as a consequence of the precariousness of the new employment contracts, with partial contracts and survival wages, which is the new labor reality of indignation. Added to this is the decline in the purchasing power of pensions, with one out of three retirees below this poverty line, while increasing the gender wage gap, both in wages and pensions.

We face an ideological and strategic attack that claims that what until recently were rights are now business: education, health, pensions, etc. In short, everything that is ours, of all, is becoming a dividend for the big business corporations. In return, we are forced to rescue banks and roads, paying a debt that is not ours, which is illegitimate, and which largely comes from corruption. They are cheating us.

Since the CGT (General Confederation of Labor) we say that we will not resign ourselves to the fact that banks are more important than people; since the CGT we have rejected the growing privatization and precariousness of public services; since the CGT we will not allow the dismantling of the public system of pensions; in the CGT we do not accept that the working class has reduced its rights every day with new labor reforms.

It is time to do a division of labor by reducing the work day, ending the overtime and advancing the retirement age so that everyone can have work. Public services that have been privatized must be recovered, where the most important is their efficiency in order to have social protection that is public and universal. It is imperative to distribute wealth through a tax reform that makes large fortunes and corporations bear most of the expense, since it is they who have benefited from this crisis-fraud. We have to stop fraud and tax havens.

For the CGT resignation is not an option, it is time to reoccupy the streets, it is more necessary than ever for CGT to be present where social injustice takes place, a permanent mobilization of the CGT against this corrupt system is necessary , summoning and participating in all the mobilizations that are possible to achieve a self-organized, antipatriarchal, ecologist, non-racist or xenophobic ... libertarian society.


We follow in the streets
