WFTU statement on the murderous attacks in Barcelona and Cambrils
18 Aug 2017 EUROPE, SPAIN
The World Federation of Trade Unions, representing more than 92 million workers in 126 countries all over the world, strongly denounces the murderous attacks that took place yesterday in Barcelona and in Cambrils, where many people were killed or injured. We are extending our sincere condolences to the families and friends of the victims.
Such murderous attacks take place in the framework of fierce competition of imperialist powers, in the framework of wars and interventions all over the world and aim at terrorizing the peoples and intensifying repressive measures against them, while at the same time they are cultivating fear and xenophobia.
As class oriented world trade union movement, we firmly stand by the side of the people of the Spanish State and call on them to intensify their struggles against the reasons that generate wars and conflicts as well as murderous plans and mechanisms to the detriment of the peoples.
