We Condemn the Murder of Migrant Unionist of USB in Italy

Nazionale -

The World Federation of Teachers Unions, affiliated member of WFTU condemns the murder of a migrant worker Soumaila Sacko, a member of the USB Italy trade union organization that was shot Sunday night on June 3.

Soumaila Sacko was a USB fighter at the forefront of the struggles for the rights of over 4,000 migrant workers in the Calabria fields. The trade unionist was shot on Sunday night by a man who stopped his car and shot four times in cold blood while he and other immigrants were looking for materials in an abandoned factory. One of the bullets hit Soumaila Sacko in the head, killing him, while two other immigrants were injured. Immigrants at that time were looking for materials for their huts in the neighboring ghettos of San Ferdinand, which was the target of attack in January by far-right organizations.

The USB denounces the motivation of the murder to be the black skin of immigrants, and that this attack took place only a few hours after the racist statements of the new interior minister of Italy and head of the far right Lega, Salvini.

USB, a member of the WFTU in Italy, responded to the racist assassination with General Strike in the Calabria fields and a National Rally in Rome on 16 June.

FISE expresses its Solidarity in the struggle of Italian and Immigrant workers against the common enemy, which is the system that generates poverty, wars, exploitation, and racism.

We express our warm condolences to the comrades, friends and relatives of Soumaila Sacko to the USB.

Condenamos el asesinato del sindicalista migrante de USB en Italia

El Sindicato Mundial de la Federación de Maestros, miembro afiliado de la FSM condena el asesinato del trabajador migratorio Soumaila Sacko, miembro de la organización sindical USB Italia que fue asesinado la noche del domingo 3 de junio.

Soumaila Sacko fue un luchador USB a la vanguardia de las luchas por los derechos de más de 4.000 trabajadores migrantes en los campos de Calabria. El sindicalista recibió disparos el domingo por la noche mientras él y otros inmigrantes buscaban materiales en una fábrica abandonada, por un hombre que detuvo su automóvil y le disparó cuatro veces a sangre fría. Una de las balas encontró a Soumaila Sacko en la cabeza, matándolo, mientras que otros dos inmigrantes resultaron heridos. Los inmigrantes en ese momento estaban buscando materiales para sus cabañas en los guetos vecinos de San Ferdinand, que fue blanco de ataques en enero por organizaciones de extrema derecha.

El USB denuncia la motivación del asesinato para ser la piel negra de los inmigrantes, y que este ataque tuvo lugar solo unas pocas horas después de las declaraciones racistas del nuevo ministro del Interior de Italia y jefe de la extrema derecha Lega, Salvini.

USB, miembro de la FSM en Italia, respondió al asesinato racista con el General Strike en los campos de Calabria y al Rally Nacional en Roma el 16 de junio.

FISE expresa su Solidaridad en la lucha de los trabajadores italianos e inmigrantes contra el enemigo común, que es el sistema que genera pobreza, guerras, explotación y racismo.

Expresamos nuestras más sinceras condolencias a los camaradas, amigos y familiares de Soumaila Sacko por el USB.
