(en) [Spain] Chronicle of the May 1 rally of the CNT de Zaragoza: CNT calls the General Strike By ANA (pt) [machine translation]
Tue, 8 May 2018 07:42:13 +0300
Under the motto "Towards the General Strike" several hundred people attended the CNT
summoning in Zaragoza, whose demonstration ran from 12 noon downtown San Miguel Square to
San Felipe Square. ---- During the demonstration it was possible to listen to slogans
against the current worsening of working-class conditions: theft of pensions, the gender
pay gap, temporary work or unemployment. Calling for an indefinite General Strike as a way
to jointly overcome these problems affecting various sectors of the working class. ----
The role of the magistracy as "lacaia do poder" and the class and patriarchal character
that justice manifests on a daily basis, which has recently reached shameful and
inadmissible limits, was also pointed out. ---- The Zaragoza summons was also in the
framework of the CNT's campaign for the feminist struggle in the world of trade unions
"starting from the reaction of the feminist strike of March 8 to give continuity and
further progress," said the general secretary of the anarcho-syndicalist confederation,
Enrique Ho , in his speech at San Felipe Square.
In addition to Hoz, invited to the occasion, there was an intervention in the final speech
in solidarity with the accused in the four judicial processes that are currently open
against CNT trade unionists (in Logroño, Huesca, Gijón and Guadalajara), a clear example
of a repressive escalation which seeks to leave the working class "without the most basic
tools for its defense, such as demonstrations, pickets and strikes."
Also a worker dismissed by the company Tabernas BG (bar El Champi) for organizing a union
section of the CNT and claim something as basic as the compliance of the hotel agreement.
After the demonstration, the union carried out a picket line in front of this
establishment to demand their readmission and to remember that if the First of May is a
day of workers 'struggle, the workers' struggle is a matter of every day.
The CNT definitely took to the streets this May Day to make a call to the working class to
organize and confluence, based on their different problems, a General Strike for an
indefinite period, not forgetting that this fight is "on the street, not in parliament,
"but also in workplaces where a commitment to end exploitation and build self-management
must bring about a breakdown in which a new society emerges.
Long live the struggle of the working class!
Long live the May Day!
Count on the CNT.
