(en) libertaria Initiative of Thessaloniki: AB Vassilopoulos: another working ward (gr) [machine translation]

Date Fri, 22 Jun 2018 08:41:33 +0300

On Thursday 14/6, 56-year-old Stathis Karageorgopoulos lost his life during his work at the "AV Vassilopoulos" store on Ameriki Street in Patras. The work accident occurred as the worker carried out cleaning work on the roof of a room for the maintenance of goods, during which the roof fell and led him to a drop of 3.5 meters. The address of the store, which, of course, is the responsibility for the accident, of course, since there were no elementary safety measures in the store, did not even hold the pretensions from the very beginning. While the worker was lying dead on the ground and for two hours until his corpse was transferred, the management decided that the shop would work properly, and the next day it closed only after 4 in the afternoon, so that the deceased's colleagues can go to the funeral. But vulgarity did not stop there, as employers did not hesitate to try to deny not only their responsibilities, but also to deny the incident itself by disseminating that the death of the 56-year-old was due to opposition, which is naturally contradicted by the forensic report that proved that death is due to craniocerebral injuries from the fall.

The imposed working age is a result of the downward policy of downgrading, forced by the violent restructuring of capital. Work creches occupy more and more space in modern working reality. Exhaustive working hours, unpaid labor hours, precarious and intensified work - mostly insured - and the lack of security measures, on the one hand, kill workers on a daily basis, with bosses richer on their backs, on the other hand they escalate with the shameful event of the killings of workers.

Resistors of the working class are now facing a tremendous threat, as with a corresponding amendment to the dictate of the 3rd assessment, approval by 50% + 1 of the registered members is now required as a condition for a strike by primary unions instead of the current one of the majority of the members present at the general assembly of the association. Essentially, this arrangement makes it impossible for strikes to be declared, generously offering the bosses the "gift" of the unimpeded - from the workers' mobilizations - the extraction of surplus value.

In order not to be bastarded and blessed by the bosses, whether large or small, and the consensual, bureaucratic, bureaucratic trade unionism that engages peace with our class enemies, it is imperative to organize an intransigent, militant trade unionist base. Put our labor interests ahead and take our lives in our hands without hierarchies, mediations and paternalisms. Prepare the fierce general strikes of lasting, linking them with a revolutionary project that will contribute to collective and individual emancipation, to the end of man-to-person power, to social self-management.

As long as pieces of our order are struck by the burglary and arbitrariness of the bosses, we will contrast class solidarity and self-organization in the workplace so as to stop every hit we accept while preparing our counter-attack against the world of state and capital , so that we can build on the debris the society of generalized self-management, libertarian communism.
