(en) Spain, The Miners March - Workers Solidarity Trade Union Confederation* Press Release (ca) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 21 Jul 2012 09:26:22 +0300

Yesterday, July 11, before the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism, was one of the clearest examples to follow in the fight for labor rights: workers in the coalfields of Asturias, Castilla y Leon and Aragon. Workers who are on indefinite strike for over a month, and who have been deprived of wages agreed upon and signed by the previous government in the National Strategic Reserve Coal, besides being subject to a European subsidy scheme agreed until 2018 that ensured the permanence of the river, but all of a sudden, without warning or anesthesia, the current government has decided that this agreement will be fulfilled, again using the justification of the crisis and seeks to place cuts 68% of subsidies, leaving entire families without support. On the other hand the government puts forward the argument that the import cost of this resource is cheaper, but it is well known that the Spanish state already imports 80% of energy resources, which is why we are the fifth European country by the tail in domestic electricity consumption shortages.

This event was supported by a large number of people, noting that the miners here in Madrid had the support of the working class. And so they did know their path, shouting slogans of support as "Madrid, laborer, is supporting the miners", "Long live the struggle of the working class" ...

The fight to keep the miners is a further example, the confrontation that keeps the government against the / as workers / as, that "manage" this country based on laws without consensus, enforced by an absolute majority achieved based on fallacies, making and undoing, and obeying the directives of Europe at face value, for your help to solve the mess that politicians and bankers have created. An aid as a loan, subject to harsh conditions, which is not to citizens but to help their "little friends" bankers.

From Workers Solidarity and we continue to fight and support for decent working conditions and rights acquired through years of struggle.

They claim that workers / as we can not, in the not too distant even to speak out or protest, as was made clear in the protests yesterday, with the help of the "picket pattern" as they loaded and provoked against anyone who was at your "justice".
