Mexico | In Mexico, Solidarity Versus the State

by Christy Thornton

The horrifying coincidence of this week’s devastating earthquake in central Mexico, coming on the 32nd anniversary of the temblor that killed more than 10,000 people in 1985, has led observers and survivors to draw constant parallels between the two disasters. But if the corruption and ineffectiveness of the state took some by surprise in 1985, unraveling the last threads of legitimacy of PRI single-party rule, today there is no ambiguity.

La révolte des ouvriers serbes face à leurs patrons étrangers

La grève des ouvriers de Fiat fin juin a marqué les esprits. Les 2.400 ouvriers de l’usine de Kragujevac dans le centre du pays demandaient une hausse de leur salaire de plus de 18%. Une demande qui peut sembler exorbitante pour qui ignore que cela aurait fait passer leur traitement à… 370 euros mensuels. Soit 30 euros en dessous du salaire moyen de ce pays, qui négocie son adhésion à l’Union européenne.

An Open Letter by a Picadilly worker in Bulgaria

The workers of one of the largest food retailers in Bulgaria, went on wildcat strikes across the country since 20th of March that mainly took place in Sofia and Varna, after not receiving wages for over months. The company owners and high management are in hiding and refuse to make any explanation to the workers about the wage theft. In Sofia the workers alongside Autonomous Worker’s Union, protested in front of the company’s headquarters and in Varna they occupied the largest store in the chain and then marched to the bank in control of the company’s assets. During their months long struggle the workers of Picadilly joined their forces with the workers of Max Telecom, the miners of Bobov Dol, toilers from Dupnitsa and chemical factory workers from Dimitrovgrad to organize a joint campaign. The first coordinated action of this campaign happened in 5th of September, around 150 workers from different cities marched in front of the Bulgarian Parliament in Sofia and raised their voices against the wage theft of their bosses.
