(en) Sindicato Único de Trabajadores Solidaridad Obrera: In Colombia, they are killing the working class - We cannot allow it! Class Solidarity! (ca, pt) [machine translation]
Wed, 12 May 2021 11:09:13 +0300
Since last April 28, the Colombian working class and common people have not left
the streets. Shouting "They Are Killing Us!" they have come out to fight with a
general strike, pickets, pot-banging and looting, against the attack that the tax
reform promoted by the government of Duque, a puppet of US imperialism, means for
the pockets of working families. ---- The government's response was a brutal
repression with dozens killed, more than 50 disappeared and hundreds of political
prisoners who were taken to a sports arena completely illegally. ---- Despite the
Duque government's announcement of his "withdrawal" of the tax reform, the people
no longer believe him, they know that it is a trap and that is why they do not
leave the streets. The strike and self-defense continues despite the union
bureaucracy; after 7 days there is a shortage of staples in certain cities, but
the working class is organized by neighborhoods, elects its delegates, organizes
its health committees to help the injured, and supply committees to provide food
to working class families. THAT'S THE WAY!
For two days, they have brought the police and the army to the streets of Cali
and other cities to massacre. A 7-year-old boy was murdered last night and
hundreds of young people have been beaten to death, increasing the number of
dead, disappeared and detained.
WE CANNOT ALLOW THIS.
That is why we want to extend all our solidarity to the heroic Colombian workers.
We are next to you, you are not alone!
We call on all militant and class consciousunions to call for a demonstration in
support of the Colombian working class and people.
Let us report in our workplaces to denounce that in Colombia "THEY ARE KILLING US".
LONG LIVE THE STRUGGLE OF THE WORKING CLASS!
