(en) Greece, The self-managed factory in Viomijanikí Metaleftikí (Mining) in Thessaloniki is running - Federation Anarchiste (France) (fr) [machine translation]

Date Wed, 30 Jan 2013 17:18:45 +0200

In May 2011, the management of the plant Viomijanikí Metaleftikí (Mining), a subsidiary of Johnson Filkeram-company production of tiles and building materials, plant leaves without pay for several months of unpaid wages workers. In response, the factory workers stopped work from September 2011 . Assembly workers held on January 25, 2013 decided, almost unanimously, that the plant will be self-managed by workers, without bosses or other parasites or mediators. The self-managed factory to open in mid-February 2013. ---- Below the release of the Open Initiative of Solidarity and Support Workers Fight Viomijanikí Metaleftikí (Mining), published on the website of the Union of Workers ( http://biom-metal.blogspot.gr / ) the company already self-managed.

In crisis, workers Viomijanikí Metaleftikí (Industrial Minera) attack at the heart of the operation and ownership.

While the unemployment rate reached 30% and their income is reduced to zero, workers Viomijanikí Metaleftikí (Mining) have enough of rhetoric, promises and tax evasion. Without pay since May 2011 and without work, their factory had been abandoned by their leaders, they take the decision at the General Assembly of the union to refuse long-term unemployment seems inevitable and fight to regain the factory between their hands and make it work for themselves. By October 2011, they claim, by an official declaration, the creation of a workers' cooperative self-managed and fully legal recognition of the project as all those who succeed. They also claim the payment of funds to restart the plant. This money belongs to them, since they are the ones who create the wealth of society. The plan they developed themselves was first struck in the total indifference of the State and the various union bureaucracies. However, he received an enthusiastic welcome from the popular movement that created the Solidarity Initiative Open in Thessaloniki and other initiatives in many cities, and strives for 6 months to go Viomijanikí Metaleftikí message to the whole society.

Viomijanikí Metaleftikí is now! Workers will not wait longer than the failed state shows his interest in practical and theoretical support (even 1000 euros extraordinary economic support promised by the Ministry of Labour did not arrive until the workers, the Minister Economy Sturnaras have not signed grant permission!) Now is the factory Viomijanikí Metaleftikí (Mining) should restart, like any other plant that closed, gone bankrupt or dismissing but is managed by its workers, not bosses old and new. The fight has no reason to limit yourself to Viomijanikí Metaleftikí. And generalizes it to triumph it must extend to all factories and businesses closed, because it is only through a network of self-managed factories and occupied Viomijanikí Metaleftikí that will survive and become the pioneer of a different organization production and economy, without exploitation, without inequalities and without hierarchies. Factories are closing one after the other, there are two million unemployed, and the vast majority of society is condemned to poverty and misery by a tripartite government, the troika formed by the PASOK (Socialist) ND (New Democracy, the conservative party) and DIMAR (the Democratic Left Party), as in previous governments. Require that plants pass into the hands of the workers is a logical response to the disaster that we live every day, and this is the only possible response to unemployment. That is why the struggle Viomijanikí Metaleftikí is also ours. We urge all unemployed and all workers, all those who suffer the crisis, to put alongside workers Viomijanikí Metaleftikí support and now they begin to demonstrate in practice that workers do not need patterns. We urge you to join a caravan of struggle and solidarity will happen in Thessaloniki for three days of fighting. We urge you to take part in the struggle and to organize the battle wherever you are, via assemblies operating in direct democracy, no bureaucrat, to remove all those who destroy our lives by a general strike for political! And all plants and all production will be in the hands of workers and we can organize the economy and the society we want: a society without bosses! Viomijanikí Metaleftikí is now! To work! We open the way for worker self-management is everywhere. We open the way for a society without bosses.
