The WFTU strongly condemns the murder of 12 protesters in India
23 May 2018ASIA, INDIA
The World Federation of Trade Unions, representing more than 92 million workers in 126 countries of the 5 continents strongly condemns the murder of at least 12 protesters who demanded the closure of the copper smelter of «Sterlite Copper» company. The company is an affiliate of the British monopoly “Vedanta” in southern India.
The protesters demanded the cancelation of the Sterlite-Copper’s plant opening which has been shut for more than 50 days and will remain closed until at least June 6 because the local pollution regulator did not allow it to operate due to environmental reasons.
Once again bourgeoisie ranks the people’s health and life lower than its profits and the riot-police defended these profits by murdering workers. The WFTU demands the definitive closure of the plant and the immediate punishment of the responsible ones for these murders.

“PAME Calls the Unions, the National Federations, the Regional Trade Union Centers to join the Strike
action all over Greece against the new antiworkers’ bill forwarded by the Government on Friday January
Against this new attack PAME has called for General Strike on Friday, January 12. Dozens of
National Workers’ Federations, Regional Trade Union Centers and Trade Unions have already
responded to the call.
The GSEE-ADEDY (members of ETUC in Greece) and their unions have refused to call for Strike, so
as to give time to the Government to abolish workers’ basic rights.
The new bill includes a series of antiworkers’ measures (abolition of any protection of
workers’ homes so as to be auctioned by the banks, new taxes, etc) as well as imposition of new
laws on trade union action and organization aiming to ban our right to go on strike.
The class trade unions are organizing a series of actions to strengthen workers’ response to the new
attack and prepare massive participation to the strike under the Slogan “Hands off! From our Right to Go
On Tuesday January 9 the class unions of Athens held a militant demonstration and protest to

delegation of the Unions, who demanded the cancelation of the bill that bans workers’ right to go on
strike. The Minister refused to withdraw the bill and slandered the class unions.”
Cuban Revolution under the leadership of Fidel Castro and his guerrilla comrades including Che Guivera and Raul Castro succeeded on 1st January 1959, liberating the country from the dictatorship of Batista, who ran away to Dominican Republic.
During the last 59 years, Communist Cuba had to face many challenges including the economic blockade imposed by US and certain other countries. US made several attempts to murder Fidel Castro, but failed. The then USSR defeated the move of US to attack Cuba. After the collapse of USSR, Cuba had to face several crises, but came out successfully.
After Fidel Castro vacated the post of President, Raul Castro became the President. Che Guivera, the revolutionary, left the post of Minister and went to Bolivia to lead the revolutionary struggle but was caught and murdered in cold blood. He lives as the eternal revolutionary in the minds of crores and crore of young people as their icon.
Cuba has lighted the torch of socialism and communism in Latin America, which is getting more and more support from nearby countries. Many left of the centre governments have come in to existence.
Communist Cuba had already achieved many laurels for its best health system, governance etc., despite continued blockade.
My Hearty Congratulations and Best Wishes to the Cuban people on this Revolution Day!
US President Donald Trump is in the habit of threatening and bullying countries which do not toe its line or do not heed its advises. The latest is its threatening the countries with funding cuts, if they vote in the UN against the US decision declaring Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and shifting its embassy to the city from Tel Aviv. Despite its threatening only 9 countries supported its stand in the UN. The huge majority supported the UN resolution against the US declaration and its deplorable stand on Jerusalem. In the security Council with 14 members, US was isolated earlier.
In an unprecedented move, both US and Israel has left the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO)on the ground that the latter is taking an anti – Israel stand. The US has not been contributing to the UNESCO fund since 2011 since UNESCO has been recognizing Palestine.
Narrow nationalism and anti-Palestine phobia has blinded US against international commitments. World nations have criticized US for the unjustified withdrawal and also non payment of funds to UNESCO.
