It seems a lie, but for public education, in the case of ANEP, this Surrender consists of a single article which says that 1,500 million pesos, or 50 million dollars, will be granted for wages. It is not said how they will be distributed, amounts, terms, games, etc. Nothing. ---- However, the project provides a detailed chapter for the Ministry of Interior, where there is an abundance of all kinds of posts, which amount to several hundred, funds are given for hierarchical positions and for recruiting university professionals of various orientations. It is striking that it is one of the few ministries that require this kind of professionals, so it can be appreciated that police technification involves inserting into the police apparatus sociologists, psychiatrists, various graduates ... Also, to collaborate with the Repression one of the few job exits that have graduated professionals from the University tells us about a big problem, where is the higher education in the country is turning.

LETTER OPINION fAu

JULY 2017

An Accountability that gives nothing to popular needs

It seems a lie, but for public education, in the case of ANEP, this Surrender consists of a single article which says that 1500 million pesos, or 50 million dollars, will be granted for wages. It is not said how they will be distributed, amounts, terms, games, etc. Nothing.
However, the project provides a detailed chapter for the Ministry of Interior, where there is an abundance of all kinds of posts, which amount to several hundred, funds are given for hierarchical positions and for recruiting university professionals of various orientations. It is striking that it is one of the few ministries that require this kind of professionals, so it can be appreciated that police technification involves inserting into the police apparatus sociologists, psychiatrists, various graduates ... Also, to collaborate with the Repression one of the few job exits that have graduated professionals from the University tells us about a big problem, where is the higher education in the country is turning.

And work?

Policies and investments to generate employment in this Accountability are lacking. All the expectation is placed in waiting UPM's investment as a manna fallen from the sky. Not only will economic dependence increase, but the employment that will be generated will be in the construction phase of the work, but not beyond it. It is not a proposal of economic development, it is a momentary palliative so that the numbers continue closing.
The privatization returns

Step by step, and in fragmentary form, the government has been advancing in the privatization of different areas of the State. Much is said about refloating the railroad, but always linked to the investments of multinationals, as is expected from UPM. This type of investment, which can be via Public Private Participation (PPP) or directly with state funds to meet the needs of this multinational, will be in the hands of a "private operator", that is, a private company.
The workers of Ancap have suffered not only the declaration of Essentiality, but under it the closing of the medical service was carried out. With the speech that it is "a luxury" and "we must be supportive" to pass these workers to FONASA, a service that specifically addresses the occupational diseases generated by oil and its byproducts and portland cement is closed. Now who's going to take care of this? Even more so when the health system is saturated.

It is the old policy implemented to close services, privatizing others, putting NGOs into government ministries and services, outsourcing and a whole set of variants whose objective is to broaden the role of private capital in public areas, financing with public funds To various private companies. That is, transferring money from the village to certain entrepreneurs. A policy that has at the moment, as a more scandalous example the delivery of Hospital Clinics to private capital PPP routes. Some public-and university-health services are being transferred to the private sphere.

The Reformation of the Military Box

The workers finance every year the deficit of the Military Fund, which for this will be around US $ 470 million. Inheritance of the dictatorship, military retirements are a privilege, since they have a special regime of benefits that no sector of workers enjoys. But in addition, it is scandalous to sustain an Armed Forces that spend annually 1% of GDP, or rather more than US $ 500 million. That is to say, that annually the Uruguayan people spend more than 1 billion dollars in an armed forces that for the only thing that have served is to repress the town and they still have to answer for the destiny of the disappeared ones. All that spending, can not be turned to popular housing, raise the standard of living of the poorest sectors, health, education, public services, generation of work?
But the military have defenders. There, former President Mujica left to demand a reform of the Military Organic Law. Mujica and the MPP put forward an issue that will not have a quick parliamentary resolution to safeguard the privileges of senior Armed Forces commanders and the policy of impunity. If it is almost impossible to place a tax on retired military personnel, who announced that they will not negotiate "not a millimeter", can anyone think that soon will modify the law governing the operations and organization of the Armed Forces? None of these things will count on the consensus of the military caste, of course. Therefore, the military - active and retired - will exert sufficient pressure to file both issues,

While all this happens, when the military has impunity guaranteed by the whole political establishment, when no progress is made in finding the truth of what happened during the dictatorship and much less progress is made in justice, a war budget is allocated to some armed forces Unnecessary. Is not it time to re-raise the dismantling of the armed forces?

The perspective is of struggle

There is no other: the perspective is of struggle. Against all the speeches that call for not to fight, not to mobilize, to "look after the government but turn the right", we must raise a perspective of prolonged combat, of Resistance in front of all this policy of delivery of the public to the private capital. Strengthen unions and grassroots organizations, with debate and participation of all workers, the same in student unions, call the struggle to all workers, students and the people in general, we are being affected by these anti-popular policies .
If the right returns to the government tomorrow it will be in the hands of the current government that opens the way to speeches and retrograde proposals, not because of the popular struggle. Therefore, in these moments of general unemployment of 24 hours, it is time to take measures on the street and go for more. Develop a fight plan for the months that follow. Consider mobilizations of size and also workplaces, develop the agitation necessary to spread the claims of grassroots organizations and put on the table the main problems that are being faced. The economic-social situation may be "auspicious" in numbers in the coming years, but it will not be reflected in the standard of living of the people. The wealth will be swallowed up by the above, by the bosses, the landowners, the bankers, Managers and multinationals. The only perspective is the fight, it is Resist!!

PRESPUESTO PARA PEOPLE!!
NO PRIVATIZATION!!
DISMANTLING THE FIGHTS!! M / h3>
