Solidarity message of the European Regional Office of the WFTU to the general strike organized by USB Italy on 21st October 2016
On behalf of the European Regional Office of the WFTU we express our class solidarity towards the Italian working people and support to the general strike organized by USB on the 21st of October 2016.
A strike against the Renzi's government, the Italian puppet of the Troika, whose political and economic recipes is crushing the salaries and the pensions, cutting social expenses and imposing laws that make the workers even more precarious and with less rights.
Within the European Union, the imposition of tough anti-labor measures and the attacks on workers’ rights have led European societies to unemployment, impoverishment and marginalization.
Tragic consequence of these developments was the recent developments in Italy was the recent murder of the USB member Abdel Salam El Danaf who was killed while he was participating in a strike picket.
Abdel Salam struggled to the end of his life against the brutality of capitalism.
