(en) ait-rus - Brazil: Anarcho-syndicalists take part in protests in education [machine translation]

Date Wed, 22 May 2019 09:51:12 +0300

Anarcho-syndicalists from the Brazilian Workers' Confederation (COB-AIT, section of the International Association of Workers) took part in protest speeches by educators and students against the neoliberal policies of far-right president Bolsonar on May 15. The general strike at state universities and schools and demonstrations, which were attended by hundreds of thousands of people in 188 cities of 27 states of the country, became the first mass challenge to the regime of Bolsonar. ---- The right-wing government of Brazil announced its intention to cut subsidies to state universities by 30%. But this is not the only reason for indignation of the protesters. People are dissatisfied with many other measures of the authorities, including budget cuts in other areas, pension reform, repression, etc.

By taking part in demonstrations (in particular, in the city of Porto Alegre, where the picture was taken), COB said that its activists took to the streets with their own agenda. "Although we know that almost the overwhelming majority of these demonstrations throughout the country are clearly organized by (...) parties and (...)" yellow "state-related trade unions, the PSO took part in them, but not to go to the tail of these manifestations (...). " Recalling that anarcho-syndicalists organize their own pickets and actions, expressing their protest in a simple and understandable form, the comrades further stated: ".

Before and during the demonstrations, the anarcho-syndicalists distributed their own posters and leaflets. Recalling that. that the struggle is not only in the field of education, they called for a perpetual general strike, for self-organization - without parties, heads, intermediaries, government support, and reformist trade unions.
