(en) el miliciano cnt-ait chiclana: Levante Regional: If your luxuries are our misery we refuse to produce them (ca) [machine translation]
Wed, 3 Jun 2020 08:27:17 +0300
In recent months we have witnessed a Dantesque spectacle: privatization has shown us the shame of a system that prioritizes the benefit of
companies over people. Outcome? Thousands of deaths, of course, concentrated in working-class neighborhoods, health, care, cleaning,
transport, service and geriatric population. Precisely, the most defenseless and endemically immersed population in precariousness and
exclusion. ---- We live in uncertain times; a small virus has come to show what we already knew: we are bait for savage capitalism. Once
again, we will be sacrificed in defense of the privileges of a few and their market benefits. ---- His recipes for the cure are again the
same as always: Millions of layoffs, alarming setback in freedoms and rights, more precariousness, aid to banks and companies while the
working class dies in its slashes or in the solitude and abandonment of a field hospital. Not to mention those who die in their homes
waiting for help that never reaches the neighborhoods of the urban slum.
The State and Capital have been cutting labor rights that we had previously obtained, and we fear that with the excuse of the epidemic that
we are experiencing, politicians and businessmen want to tighten us even more, if possible, the rope that they put on our necks, in order to
continue squeezing and exploiting each day more.
WE WILL NOT ALLOW IT! IT'S TIME TO CLAIM WHAT IS OURS.
We will not pay for this crisis because it is done in human lives and we have already paid too much. If your profits are private, why do we
always have to share your losses?
The existing level of unemployment, and the one that is surely looming if not remedied, should force us to consider what way out we want: to
further increase the levels of exploitation, waste and contamination in this absurd race for infinite growth on a planet of limited
resources; or on the contrary, a fair and rational distribution of wealth.
To end unemployment, a 40-hour workday from more than a century ago cannot be maintained. Today's productivity, technology and automation
have nothing to do with then. And it translates into a continuous saving of companies in labor. All those profits are kept by the
capitalists. It is high time that a part of the advantages of technological advances in companies go to the working class that produces
Therefore, to end the level of unemployment, it is vital to reduce the working day without a reduction in wages (distribution of work and
wealth), the abolition of overtime and retirement at age 55, so that you can work the great
number of unemployed youth. And like the conquest of the 40-hour day more than a century ago, through the Canadian strike, they will not
grant us anything without a fight.
So an indefinite general strike is necessary.
IF THEIR LUXURIES ARE OUR MISERY WE REFUSE TO PRODUCE THEM.
Our leaders have dedicated themselves to plundering public health, leaving it in a deplorable state, privatizing and stripping it of all
His anti-worker policies have left us in absolute poverty. We are already seeing it: the differences between exploited and exploiters are
now more palpable for the people; Thousands of people today will not have anything to fill the fridge with.
The leaders know in what this situation is going to derive, that is why they take their repressive forces for a walk, who like beasts take
advantage of any situation to fine, intimidate, arrest and beat the working class.
We live in a historical moment, or we prop up our rights and obtain new conquests that benefit our class, or we plunge into the bosses and
? REDUCTION OF THE WORK DAY TO 25 HOURS.
? ABOLITION OF EXTRA HOURS.
? RETIREMENT AT 55 YEARS.
DEAL OF WORK AND WEALTH.
GENERAL AND INDEFINITE STRIKE!
