(en) Libertarian Thessaloniki Initiative: The murder of 45-year worker at the landfill Mavrorachi (gr) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 16 Jul 2017 19:59:03 +0300

We will not get used to death. We will fight for life ---- Sunday 07/02/2017 landfill Mavrorachi seriously injured at work and even extraordinary, ie outside the program, 45, contractor. During the night shift, during storage of compressed garbage with sliding tractors, trailer connecting tractors folded. The employee diakomisthike ICU Papageorgiou hospital, where he eventually ended Saturday 8/7. This event joins another recent murder in the area of waste disposal, which occurred at dawn Saturday 1/7, when an employee of the municipality 62chroni Painter died of being exhausted as he was forced to make three shifts within 36 hours. ---- These two murders have occurred since the end of the strike of the WTO OTA, which lasted 11 days (18/6 - 29/6). A key demand of the strike was the establishment of about 10,000 contract workers of municipal waste collection services. It is the eminently unfavorable work environment that was included in the category of "heavy and unhealthy" just a few years ago, although borne directly by the workers' health. But the knife even more pushing the neck of workers because of bad working conditions, the risk of redundancies be lurking at any time.

In Thessaloniki, the mayor I. Mpoutaris sought to force the strikers to end their protests. He threatened to give 192,000 euros to a private company to collect the city's garbage. Although this does not finally happened, such a possibility would be the more pronounced suppression of the strike on the part of the state, with overt use of strike-breakers. At the same time, the media sykofantousan the just struggle of the strikers, the government announced that the Communist Party of the strike was motivated by the opposition, while the latter encouraged private initiative to address the issue of collection of garbage.

Finally, the union leadership WTO OTA capitulated to a minimum by extending the contracts for two additional months. Also, the government through legislative regulation promised intake of 25% of strikers struggling through ASEP competition, thus breaking the collective climate demands and directing subjects of the race for the individual road and personal development. The wreck of this strike demonstrates the profound rottenness of the regime-bureaucratic unionism and the deterrent character of the workers' interests.

The imposed workplace Middle Ages is the result of political ftochopoiisis social majority, which requires the forced recapitalization. Labor sweatshops occupy more and more space in modern labor reality. The exhausting working hours, precarious work and intensified -anasfalisti for the most part and the lack of security measures, first kill the workers on a daily basis in order to enrich the bosses as much as possible on their backs, on the other escalate the shameful fact workers-three murder.

Which speak of random and isolated incidents of "bad time" deluding ignoring their stuff. The substance that is inherent in capitalism, that the barbarism of capital that is generated by pumping surplus of human labor and leads to the devaluation of our lives. Once the employer refers to accidents, attributing responsibilities to the workers, for us these are clearly murders weigh bosses. For bosses, profitability is not figuring human lives, hence the rudimentary or non-existent security measures.

To prevent and treat agomaste from all sorts mayor, boss and consensual union factions concluded peace with our class enemies, it is imperative to organize an uncompromising, combative base unionism. Put forward the workers' interests and to take our lives in our hands, without hierarchies, mediations and paternalism. To prepare the wild-term general strikes, linking them with a revolutionary project that will contribute to the collective and individual emancipation, the end of human power in humans, social self-management.
