Chile: Congress towards a New Syndicalism


Various organizations of great importance in the Chilean trade-union movement have called a congress with a view towards unity of those sectors of the workforce that are struggling today.


Comrades,

We hereby invite you to the Congress for a New Syndicalism which will be held next Saturday, 10 November 2012, at 9.00 am in the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanistics of the University of Chile (FAU), Santiago.

We would like to call on all those who share the ideas mentioned in this appeal to make an effort to be present at the Congress, as we are sure that the analysis and debate coming out of it will only benefit the working class and all those in Chile who struggle for a better future.

The Congress is open to all trade-union organizations, grassroots unions or workers who are members of trade-union organizations and who feel their ideas are close to those previously set out, who share the same analysis or have a different one but nonetheless wish to set out towards a new stage in the struggle which all of us must organize together.

Should you wish to participate, please send a mail to:
unidadsindical.chile@gmail.com

or directly fill in the form at:

melissa.jpg imageFECh president statement on Chile port strike 22:45 Sun 26 Jan by ideas & action 0 comments

Chilean Port workers in 14 northern and southern ports have been on strike, at various times, since late December 2013. The strike wave began in the northern Port of Angamos to continue the ongoing fight to win a paid half hour lunch break for port workers, for the integration of temporary workers into the union, and for reforms to the dictatorship-era labor law. The strike then hit other ports, with additional union members striking in support of the original demands and against the police brutality used against the Port of Angamos strikers. Responding to that accusation, Melissa Sepúlveda, President of the University of Chile Student Federation (FECh), and herself an anarchist and militant of the Frente de Estudiantes Libertarios and La Alzada, Acción Feminista Libertaria has issued the following statement. [Castellano]

After a hectic day of action featuring secondary-school students, university students and striking sub-contracted copper workers (members of the miners' union, SITECO) on Wednesday 15 June 2011 in the centre of the capital city Santiago, a huge demonstration was held which brought together (according to conservative estimates) at least 70,000 people.

The miners' strike imageStop the silent genocide of the communities and the small-scale miners in Peru! 22:27 Mon 12 Apr by Unión Socialista Libertaria 0 comments

Only through Direct Action, as seen in the case of the struggling small-scale farmers and the people of the South, who practise it intuitively and as an instinct of their oppressed class, can victory be achieved and the State be brought to its knees. We therefore call on all revolutionary and proletarian forces to exercise this class solidarity, to vigorously and actively support the struggles of the native and peasant communities, in order to prevent social activists from being killed with impunity and stop NAFTA's silent genocide. [Castellano]

re_1.jpg imageChile: Press Release on the Late Events of Repression in Arauco Province 22:12 Sun 06 May by Organización Comunista Libertaria 0 comments

Press release of the OCL (Chile) regarding the brutal acts of repression that took place on the 3rd of May in the Arauco province, in Southern Chile, in which the timber worker Rodrigo Cisterna, aged 26, ended up murdered by the Police bullets. We express our deep regret and sympathy towards the family, and our scorn towards the henchmen. The government of Michelle Bachelet is already stained with workers’ blood, exposing itself as nothing but the continuity of the repressive legacy of the previous governments of her coalition (Concertación). No crime, no martyr is to be forgotten. Struggle won’t stop, it will remain on the rise no matter all of their hitmen come out to the street against us to kill us. The people of Chile is waking up from its slumber and won’t be stopped by State violence. With Rodrigo Cisternas and all of our fallen ones in our memory, to struggle and to triumph we go!!!!!

imageLas primeras luchas obreras en Chile y la Comuna de Iquique Dec 23 by Julio César Jobet 0 comments

Reproducimos el siguiente artículo del historiador chileno Julio César Jobet, tomado del libro "Recabarren: los orígenes del movimiento obrero y del socialismo chilenos", (Prensa Latinoamericana, Santiago, Chile, 1955). Lo reproducimos como un homenaje a uno de los pioneros de la historia del movimiento obrero chileno, y como un homenaje al pueblo obrero al que él rindió estas notas a guisa de tributo. Pese a algunas imprecisiones históricas (como afirmar incorrectamente que Olea murió en la Escuela), este documento sigue siendo una breve, valiosa e informativa ojeada al movimiento obrero chileno en sus albores.
