(en) cgt catalunya: Together, let's move on to the offensive (ca, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 21 Jan 2020 09:38:20 +0200


For years , female workers have been earning less each day , with shorter and more insecure contracts that make our lives worse. Many of us find it increasingly difficult to reach the end of the month due to rising food, housing, transportation, college fees, the electricity bill, water, etc. Capitalism is becoming more aggressive every day: Wealth is accumulated by the few, while most condemn us to precariousness. ---- In addition, we live under a state which is becoming more authoritarian - gag law, labor reforms, aliens law, 135, 155, repression of political movements ... - that crushes on fines and convictions to those who raise the see in the face of injustice. ---- For all of this, it is very important that we articulate a defensive response to such aggressions from our workplaces, as this is where we suffer directly from exploitation. Because we know that the struggle for democracy cannot be stopped at the door of workplaces, we bring to the table the need for combative unionism to come together , to be a useful tool in the defense of working people.

This 2019 we have seen that when we fight, we can win . The struggles of hotel waitresses, telecom operators, Riders, Titan workers, Barcelona Bicing, Cacaolat or Sallent's Stradivarius (Inditex) factory are changing. These struggles show that combative and offensive trade unionism are capable of giving victory and useful tools for the working class as a whole.

In addition, the working class has shown a yearning for change and for breaking against the legitimizing agents of the transition, questioning the monarchy or the indissoluble state unity. This has led to responses and proposals at all levels, such as the 15M or the 1O, articulated through impressive social unionism, which, since the struggle for housing, has led to the emergence of the environmentalist and feminist movement, the movement for public pensions, against outsourcing or the Aragonese Law, have been able to shake up the social reality. An evident proof is the great influence and incidence in the strikes
feminist generals of 8-M or 3-0, after the brutal repressive wave made by the State. Now, more than ever, it is necessary to move toward forms of struggle and cultural change that allow alternatives to capitalism to be strategically considered.

It is for all these reasons that combative unionism calls for resistance and an active struggle against exploitation . We need to organize ourselves in workplaces, neighborhoods and villages, because working has to be useful to us and we don't have to live to work. We want to recover the lost salary. We urge that the right to housing is not just an empty phrase contained in a legal text. We do not accept speculation with our homes in the same way that as workers, we refuse to be a simple commodity for sale. Together we go on the offensive on all fronts .

As a starting point, we call for a mobilization day on January 30 in solidarity with the struggle of Euskal Herria workers and in defense of our rights.

Whatever governs, we will continue to fight
