(en) Argentina, FORA, 1st of May: International fight day By ANA (ca, pt) [machine translation]

In Buenos Aires, dozens of people took part in the act of 1 st May organized by the Working Federation Regional Argentina (OUT), in Praça Onze. The following is a handout we read during the event. ---- Against labor reform and the complicity of the trade union bureaucracy ---- With the labor reform underway in Congress just before these dates, the State continues to demonstrate its role as guarantor and defender of employer interests. The union bureaucracy as a whole, aligned within the official CGT or not, continues to be an accomplice and protagonist of this direct attack of capitalism on labor rights. The symbolic acts of confrontation, the threats of strike and one or other isolated paralysis are in response to constant and increasing pressure from the grassroots and the workers' organization, rather than from the real interest of the union leaders. We are not surprised by the action of the trade union bureaucracy. The CGT was created by the state and converted into a fundamental actor to ensure social peace and class reconciliation. What really worries us is the passivity with which the working class takes these stumbles over and over again. The present shows that delegating, depending on union bureaucrats and parasitic leaders, is giving the working class a passivity that plunges us day by day into misery and precariousness. We have inculcated learned impotence, where we have been given the conviction that any effort to defend us is useless since the structures of Power will win us over hopelessly. This is false. We can resist and we can win these attacks. What is lacking is organization, will and solidarity. These are our weapons of struggle. depending on union bureaucrats and parasitic leaders, is giving the working class a passivity that plunges us day by day into misery and precariousness.

In order to face this employer's advance, reflected in a disastrous labor reform for the working class with the complicity of the state and the traitorous unions, we must encourage the participation of workers in their jobs. We must encourage the creation of workers' organizations and organizations in decision-making assemblies and use direct action to combat and overcome the adjustment and withdrawal policies of the different governments on duty. Only then will a radical social change be possible. They want to convince us that our ideals are old-fashioned pieces that should be in a museum and that union organization is not necessary, while the bosses negotiate with the labor bureaucracy on the back of the workers, knowing very well the potential that can have the organized against the capitalist advance.

May this May 1 serve as a kick-start to regain hope, to redouble our efforts and not to let us be frightened by the dire living conditions that impose us!

LIVE ON MAY 1ST!
