Thabiso Bopape from a workers' committee that has been involved in ongoing strikes in the Post Office and that founded the Democratic Postal and Communications Union (Depacu) talks about the struggle of casual workers to ban labour brokers and to be directly and permanently employed by the South African Post Office (Sapo).

This discussion took place on 10 October, 2014, and so there have been some developments since then. The strike referred to by Thobiso was called off shortly after the interview, after the Minister intervened to address their demands, but a group of workers organised under the Communication Workers Union (CWU) remains out on strike at the time of publication.

For workers at universities, transformation must improve working conditions, raise wages, defend dignity and allow their full participation in governance of these institutions. Outsourcing and the privatisation of services such as cleaning at universities is against transformation because these measures lower labour standards and create a highly unjust system for workers at these institutions. This perpetuates the legacy of colonialism and apartheid.

Like cleaners in other universities, cleaners at the University of Johannesburg (UJ) – organised under the Persistent Solidarity Forum (PSF) – are in a protracted struggle to secure the rights promised in the Constitution, shape the transformation agenda of the institution and reverse outsourcing of cleaning services and other so-called non-core services. ... read full story / add a comment

Autonomy, occupation, self-management... these long-forgotten terms are back in Turkey since late 2012-early 2013. There have been several factory occupations since last year. The most prominent ones are, among others, Kazova, Greif, Zentiva, Feniş, Moda Socks Factory, Renault, and Şişecam Topkapı workplace occupations. Although both mainstream media and the trade union bureaucracy try to undermine their significance, recent struggles of the workers necessitate greater scrutiny in the wider political-economic context of Turkey; so the meaning of the occupation as well. ... read full story / add a comment

Durante il mese di gennaio, il governo nazionale ha deciso di far sprofondare la svalutazione che era già aumentata nel corso del 2013. Sul fuoco di un aumento generalizzato dei prezzi registrato nell'ultimo trimestre, il governo ha gettato ulteriore benzina con una brusca svalutazione del 20%. L'obiettivo di qualsiasi svalutazione è quello di abbassare i costi domestici in pesos (tra cui quello della manodopera) ed equilibrare i conti pubblici abbassando la spesa pubblica, cosa che in buon criollo si chiama in un solo modo RISTRUTTURAZIONE.

A la suba generalizada de precios producida en el último trimestre le arrojó un balde de combustible con la brusca devaluación del 20%. El objetivo de cualquier devaluación es bajar los costos locales en pesos (entre ellos el de la mano de obra) y equilibrar las cuentas fiscales abaratando el gasto público, lo que en buen criollo se denomina de una sola manera AJUSTE.

Cuando el país no ha visto una solución a la problemática del Catatumbo, que pasa por presentar alternativas para la sustitución de cultivos ilícitos, inversión social, inversión en infraestructura y la instauración de una zona de reserva campesina; sectores mineros y cafeteros se manifiestan en defensa de sus actividades económicas.

La respuesta del gobierno ha sido la misma que utiliza ante cualquier manifestación social: señalarla para intentar deslegitimarla, pretender levantarla con represión policial, dilatar la negociación para desgastarla y hacer algunos compromisos que no cumple a cabalidad. ... read full story / add a comment

The recent wave of resistance that spread from a park in one of the historic neighbourhoods of Istanbul, Turkey has evoked significant enthusiasm in and support from various movements and segments of populations in several countries. Although the park, which had been a temporary home for thousands of protestors for a couple of weeks, was forcibly and violently evacuated by the police on June 16th, the resistance continues in different forms and in numerous locations, both within and outside of Turkey. This unexpected and abrupt rebellion in a country, which has been presented for a decade by many international organizations and governments as a role model for the rest of the Middle East with its commitment to market reforms and ‘democratization,’ was a response to a number of factors and ongoing processes. If the most predominant of these were the increasingly authoritarian nature of the AKP (Justice and Development Party) rule, the others were the further neoliberalization of Turkish society, the utter failure of an increasingly interventionist Turkish foreign policy in the Middle East, and a complete disregard for and destruction of the environment in the service of capital across the country. ... read full story / add a comment

Cresce la campagna per uno sciopero generale per fermare Tony Abbott, ma occorre spingersi più in là e più velocemente. Ogni giorno che passa senza che ci sia una risposta organizzata da parte della classe lavoratrice, aumentano i danni ulteriori che i Liberali infliggono ai lavoratori ed ai loro diritti, aumenta la distruzione dell'ambiente, aumenta la persecuzione dei rifugiati, prosegue la guerra imperialista nell'Asia occidentale, si rafforzano le forze sociali reazionarie e si compattano gli uffici pubblici con gli zeloti della destra. Aspettare fino alle prossime elezioni significa concedere a Tony Abbott il diritto di commettere qualsiasi crimine, anche il più spaventoso. [English]

The Campaign for a General Strike to Stop Tony Abbott is developing, but needs to go a lot further and a lot faster. Each day that goes by without an organised working class response is a day that Liberals harm working class people and democratic rights in Australia further, a day to destroy the environment, torture refugees, wage imperialist war in West Asia, stoke reactionary social forces and stack public offices with Right wing zealots. To wait till the next election is to concede Tony Abbott the right to commit any crimes, no matter how appalling. [Italiano]

La CGT est à un carrefour. Ce n’est ni original de le dire, ni nouveau en réalité. Le choix est simple en fait : la CGT va-t-elle sortir du stalinisme en basculant vers le réformisme ou vers le syndicalisme révolutionnaire ? La période récente démontre qu’il n’existe pas de voie entre les deux options. La CGT peut-elle encore produire une réponse homogène ou court-elle le risque d’une scission ? Une tentative d’éclairage et quelques pistes pour une sortie renforçant le camp du syndicalisme « lutte de classe ».
