(en) The Catalan-Balearic regional of CNT is in solidarity with the strike in Euskal Herria (ca, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 25 Jan 2020 10:56:34 +0200

CNT Cataluña-Baleares has issued a statement in which it is in solidarity with the general strike called for the Basque Country and Navarra on January 30 in defense of decent public pensions. ---- «We stand in solidarity with this strike and call for support mobilizations. For the active fight against exploitation!»-They conclude in their social networks . ---- We reproduce the translated statement: ---- For years, the workers each day charge less, we have shorter and insecure contracts that make our lives worse. Many and many of us find it increasingly difficult to reach the end of the month because of the rise in food, housing, transportation, university fees, electricity bills, water, etc. Capitalism is becoming more aggressive every day: wealth is accumulated by a few while the majority condemn us to precariousness.

In addition, we live under an increasingly authoritarian state - law gagging, labor reforms, immigration law, 135, 155, repression of political movements ... - that crushes fines and convictions to those who raise their voices in the face of injustice.

For all this, it is very important that we articulate a defensive response to these aggressions from our workplaces, since it is there where we suffer exploitation directly. Because we know that the struggle for democracy cannot be stopped at the doors of the workplace, we put on the table the need for combative unionism to converge, so that it is 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 maids, telemarketers, Riders, Titan workers, Bicing in Barcelona, Cacaolat or the Stradivarius (Inditex) factory in Sallent mark a change in trend. These struggles show that a combative and offensive unionism is capable of giving victories and useful tools for the working class as a whole.

In addition, the working class has shown a yearning for change and break against the legitimating agents of the transition, calling into question the monarchy or the indissoluble unity of the State. This fact has resulted in responses and proposals at all levels, such as 15M or 1O, articulated through an impressive social unionism that, from the struggle for housing, the emergence of the environmentalist and feminist movement, the movement for Public pensions, against outsourcing or Aragonese law, have been able to shake the social reality. An evident proof is the great influence and incidence in the feminist general strikes of 8-M or that of 3-O, after the brutal repressive wave carried out by the State. Now,

It is for all these reasons that combative unionism calls for resistance and the active fight against exploitation. We need to organize ourselves in work centers, neighborhoods and towns, because working must serve us to live and we must not live to work. We want to recover the lost salary. We demand that the right to housing is not just an empty phrase of content in a legal text. We do not accept to be speculated with our homes in the same way that as workers we refuse to be a simple merchandise for sale. Together we go on the offensive on all fronts.

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

Govern who governs, we will fight!
