France: The WFTU in solidarity with the working class in France on the occasion of 19 April strike

The World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU), representing 92 million members in 126 countries around the world, reiterates its internationalist solidarity with workers in France who will strike on 19 April.

In an international context where capitalists, multinationals and European bourgeoisies attack labor rights, promote anti-worker policies, reduce pensions and wages, dismantle social gains and union rights, European workers must organize their own counter attack. Today, it is more than ever necessary for workers to coordinate their struggles globally, under the values of internationalism and class solidarity.

At the same time, workers around the world must be well aware that the same political forces – like the Macron government – that are eliminating their labor rights are the same forces that bombed Syria a few days ago; they are the same imperialists who contribute to NATO and EU interventions and who, by assassinating peoples, maximize their profits. So, our answer must be the anti-imperialist struggle.

In this context, the WFTU expresses its solidarity and it guarantees the workers of France that will continue to firmly support their just claims.

Long live internationalist solidarity!

Today early in the morning, 04.00 local time, the governments of USA, Great Britain and France bombarded the people of Syria, setting on fire the Southeastern Mediterranean Region. By using fabricated charges and excuses they want to redistribute the natural resources, the energy routes and the spheres of influence.

We call the workers of the world to organise their struggle against NATO, EU and their allies, to be on guard against the plans of the governments of the imperialistic states that bloodshed the peoples for the profits of their monopolies.

With internationalism and international solidarity to uncover the Imperialists and the dangers that the imperialistic wars are creating. We assure the working class of Syria that we will stand on their side.

For the international class oriented trade union movement the people of Syria is the only responsible to decide freely and democratically for its own present and future and not the imperialists.
