(en) anarchist-federation.gr: Class resistance against the new working middle age. All and all in the streets on 6/5! [machine translation]

Date Sat, 8 May 2021 09:46:58 +0300


This year, May Day marks a very important milestone for the struggles of the working class. The Covid-19 pandemic acted as an accelerator of the structural crisis of capitalism, plunging even more into poverty, misery, unemployment, and impoverishment the oppressed and exploited, proletarianizing a significant portion of the middle classes and increasing the wealth of the great. The blow that the government is preparing to the working class is unprecedented. But they will find us stubbornly against them, because the class struggle is not suspended. We honor the dead of the working class, continuing their struggles. We will not allow conquests to be lifted for which the people of our class toiled and gave their lives.

During all this time, the state has proved once again that it cares for the interests of the ruling class. The dismantled public health system, cuts in public spending on social welfare, the gradual privatization of health, speculation and rampant competition in the pharmaceutical industry have cost the lives of many poor people who are excluded daily from their benefits due to their class status. are public, free and free to access to ensure a dignified life for all. The ND government has made the policy of rescuing and strengthening big business a priority, fulfilling the wishes of the owners of large clinics and the bosses of the tourism industry. He stuffed the regime media with money, to incessantly propagate the narrative of individual responsibility and to lick the government and its executives, in order to obscure the criminal responsibilities of the deeply class policy pursued by the government, to manipulate and incriminate society. In addition, it spent a large part of the annual state budget on armaments expenditures that further deepen the Greek state's involvement in imperialist rivalries and war preparations, while in the interior priority was given to recruiting police officers and EPOs, upgrading and expanding its equipment. Putting society on ice with the health-related lockdown, at a time when people are crowded every day, in the absence of infrastructure and security measures, in the workplace and in the MMM,

The government found the opportunity through the complete abolition of social life and the restriction of the respective freedoms, to proceed to the adoption of anti-labor and anti-social measures, considering that it will not meet resistance. He had the audacity to exploit the pandemic opportunistically and ultimately to slander those who resisted the underestimation of our health, our work, our lives. However, she encountered massive social resistance on the educational front, in the hunger strike of Dimitris Koufontinas and in the demonstrations in the neighborhoods and squares, which is why she was forced to fold a lot, focusing on the impending profitable and without any serious open plan. tourism and possible early elections.

The next step in the government's planned offensive against the social base is the complete deregulation of labor relations, which aims to take us back a century in terms of labor rights. The new labor bill comes to put an end to the 8-hour work, which was conquered by the working class with bloody and long struggles. Now, companies will be able, when they consider that there are increased needs, to employ their employees even for 10 hours having the corresponding legal coverage of the state. The extra working hours are supposed to be returned to the employees in the form of leave or by reducing working hours on other days, something that can not be guaranteed, of course, by the arbitrariness of the employer, the dismissals, but also the fact that many employees work part-time. Most, The working week of 30-50 hours is provided with the combination of 6-hour and 12-hour work. The legal overtime increases from 120 to 150 hours and the respective company will be able to adjust the working time according to its needs, thus dismissing the employees, who will be deprived of overtime surcharges. The work on Sundays is planned to be extended to new sectors besides trade (see transport, IT, logistics, data center, telephone exchanges, digitization of paper file, production of ready-mixed concrete). With the permission of SEPE, Sunday work will be allowed in some other branches as well (see examination centers, service of extracurricular activities of private schools, maintenance of school buildings, adaptation and upgrade of information systems). Individual employment contracts will now become the norm, trying to leave employees alone and suspended in the face of boss pressure. Class unionism is targeted, trade unionists file, electronic voting is called for strikes, which provides for 40% security personnel, the employer's right to lock-out and a ban on occupying or blocking the workplace. Finally, teleworking and work through platforms are being consolidated, which implies the further elaboration of labor relations. which provides for the operation of security personnel at a rate of 40%, the employer's right to lock-out and the prohibition of occupation or exclusion of the workplace.

The government presents this new working middle age as a modernization of the outdated labor law of Greece and as a necessary concurrence of domestic labor relations with European requirements. He tries to sell us these tales in a cynical way, in order to extract the orderly consensus and social peace. That is why immediate responses must be given by the working class, its unions and its initiatives. There is an urgent need to mobilize the strikes on May Day and to support the strike from below organized by the base unions and the primary unions at the end of May.

The trade union organization of the workers is a necessary condition for the defense of their class interests. To strengthen, then, the unbridled class trade unionism and to make it a vehicle for the necessary mobilization and counterattack of the workers.

To organize our struggle for decent working conditions, wages and benefits that will meet our needs. Let us not allow the state to put the gravestone in our conquests and in the middle of our struggle. The realization of our class interests, our class enemy and the solidarity between us to become the driving forces that will mean the reconstruction of the class resistance and our frontal conflict with the state and capital. Only with our own forces can we prevent the barbaric attack methodically coordinated by state and capital. We have no illusions about the reform of a structurally unjust and exploitative system, nor do we trust our workers' struggles in the bureaucratic and submissive trade unionism of GSEE and ADEDY. We have no time to lose,

We call in support of the strikes of Labor Day, against the new anti-labor bill, on Thursday, May 6:

Athens: 11:00 at the Propylaea.
Thessaloniki: 10:30 in Kamara. We support the common a / a block.
Corinth: 11:00 at the Labor Center and 18:00 at Floisvos.

DOWN WITH THE NEW ANTHERGIC BILL - WE WILL NOT WORK AS SLAVES

MONEY FOR THE NEEDS OF THE SOCIAL BASE, NOT FOR THE EQUIPMENT, THE ARMY AND THE POLICE

THE CRISIS OF COVID-19 AND CAPITALISM TO BE PAID BY THE STATE AND THE BOSSES

HANDS DOWN WITH ASSOCIATIONS, CLASSROOM STRUGGLES AND STRIKE
