More than 10.000€ in fines and prison years petitions after the successful trade union struggles in “La Sangiovesa” and “Huerta de Peralta”.
The public prosecutor calls 2 and half prison year’s petition and 5 years expulsion from the Spanish State to one Huerta de Peralta worker who was injured two times by the Police.

The trade unions understood as an instrument at the service of the working class struggle is more necessary than ever. The working class and specially the workers with precariousness job conditions need committed, active effective trade unions. Fortunately the trade union struggles are multiplying during the last months; La Sangiovesa and Huerta de Peralta (Basque Companies) are two significant examples.

The participation of women during the Spanish Civil War much like, women’s involvement here in the period surrounding the 1916 rising and war of independence has in many way been downplayed or outright ignored.

These backlashes and rewriting of struggles are depressingly common and generally follow when women or any oppressed group have gained ground – a reversion to the status quo. In both Spain and Ireland catholic institutions and practices were used to place a stranglehold on women’s rights. Fascist Spain offered celebration of “Nationalist Womanhood” and “mother of the nation” type traditional and repressive sensibilities while Ireland had the “special place” of women in the home enshrined in the constitution.

Building upon our commitment to anticapitalist struggle, the International Labour Network of Solidarity and Struggles has noted and denounced the necessary complicity of patriarchy in the reproduction and perpetuation of the exploitation of the working class, based in the submission and double exploitation of women and individuals sexual identities other than that of the heterosexual male. When we speak of women in the plural we refer to all of them, to girls, adults, and the elderly, to lesbians, trans, bisexuals and cis, to mothers, to wage earners, to female workers, to the unemployed, to dependents, to the functionally diverse, to the ones killed, to all.
