(en) Russia, avtonom Raising the retirement age: before the consideration of the bill in the first reading near the State Duma will meet with deputies [machine translation]

Date Sun, 22 Jul 2018 13:56:32 +0300

On the opening day of the World Cup, the government announced plans to raise the retirement age. From 55 years to 63 - in women, and from 60 to 65 - in men. Up to this age in Russia 43% of men and almost 20% of women do not live. Everyone who is lucky enough to live will receive from the state almost one million rubles less pension payments. ---- It is obvious that older people have the right to support from the community. In Russia at the moment it is carried out ugly. It is necessary to change the system in the direction of raising pensions: not by a thousand rubles, as the government suggests. ---- The authorities are talking about the economic and demographic reasons for their reform. Given the level of social inequality in the country, these arguments are untenable. When the economy ceases to be focused on the interests of a handful of oligarchs and officials, there will be money for good pensions and good salaries.

Protests against pension reform have already taken place in many cities of Russia. In Moscow, the authorities refused to agree on a mass demonstration and rally in the center of Moscow, announced on July 18 by a coalition of democratic trade unions, a number of political parties and public associations. The mass picketing of the State Duma of the Russian Federation on the first day of the consideration of the draft law on pension reform (July 19) was also not agreed upon by the Moscow authorities.

Nevertheless, on July 19 from 9:00 to 12:00 there will be a meeting of the State Duma deputies from the Communist Party faction with voters to raise the retirement age. The meeting will take place on the inner yard near the house 1 along Okhotny Ryad (near the main building of the State Duma of the Russian Federation).

Come protest against the predatory bill!
