(en) usi-ait: "Soft" coup in Catalonia? (ca, it)

Date Thu, 28 Sep 2017 14:38:59 +0300

Dear comrades: ---- bellow is a statement approved by all unions in the "regional", in this case, Catalonia and the Balearic Islands. Please translate to your local language and distribute and post widely. ---- If you'd rather work on the Spanish/Catalan version, it can be found here https://cntlhospitalet.wordpress.com/ ---- As I said in my earlier report, the comrades are working hard to distance themselves from the nationalist agenda and introduce a class perspective to the issue, but this is difficult, amid an understandable surge in nationalist sentiment in the people. Meanwhile, repression is growing larger, and the militarisation of Catalonia is starting to look more and more like a "soft" coup. ---- On the union front, the larger, official unions, seem to be distancing themselves already from the call for a general strike, "favouring a different approach, instead", while reports say that CGT is tearing itself appart with internal strife in the wake of their behaviour on this issue. Other smaller unions are keen to go on with the strike, but some of them are closely linked to nationalist groups or parties, and see it only from a political point of view.

CNT, on its side, have an important meeting today, to decide whether the Catalan unions will join the strike on a regional level, or on a local, one by one, basis. This meeting will also have to outline the aims of the strike, put the wheels in motion to organise it, etc. But as far as we are concerned, one way or another, we're heading to a general strike in Catalonia. We'll keep you posted.
Thanks for your support.
