(en) Spain, CNT Holds its 10th Congress [ca]

Date Wed, 01 Dec 2010 20:17:07 +0200

More than 500 delegates, representing approximately 120 unions of the Confederation, will meet in the Andalucian capital to discuss proposals and alternatives for the new challenges imposed by the the starkest version of Capital, which is hitting the rights and basic needs of the working class with full force. ---For the CNT, this conference is particularly significant, thus it is not in vain that it will be held when this anarcho-syndicalist organization celebrates one hundred years its existence. A century of struggle, full of comrades who have built the libertarian ideal with their lives and efforts. A century of successes and also of mistakes, but always filled with the conviction that the working class can create a different society through direct action, solidarity and self management. A society for the people, not for money.

The Congress X is the ascertation that the CNT is still alive and
fighting one hundred years later, as demonstrated daily in the
workplace and in the street. It was the protagonist of many struggles
last year: Flightcare, FCC, Casolo, SEAGA, Atento, EULEN, SGAE,
Mercadona, ISS, Ryanair, PRASUR, ACSA, CESPA .... It has also expanded
into sectors hitherto neglected or only slightly touched by the
official unions: archaeology, social Intervention, forestry (where CNT
called a strike on its own in Galicia last summer) and has taken a
leading role in promoting assemblies of the unemployed or general
strikes in places like Lebrija for the fair division of labor. And CNT
is always true to its principles.

Because, despite the time which has passed, the premises of
anarcho-syndicalism and its analysis of society and labor are still
valid; even if there are those who have an interest in claiming we
don't exist, we keep on working day after day to put our principles
into practice. The industrial action we do shows that despite the
constraints imposed on us, a trade unionism beyond the trap of union
elections, without unionists released from work duties, without
subsidies, based on mutual aid and solidarity and not on inert
"representativity" is possible.

Now, when the echoes of labor reform have still not abated and the
future effects of the pension reform are just beginning to be
discerned, the CNT seeks to create an organized response at the X
Congress, a coordinated and powerful affront to the new turn of the
screw of finance capitalism, insatiable and immoral.

Parallel to the lX Congress, Cultural Days events have been taking
place since the beginnings of November and will continue during the
Congress proceedings. (More information:http://cnt.es/xcongreso In
