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.

PAME, which represents the class trade union movement of Greece, expresses its solidarity to the just struggle of the Bus Drivers and Engineers of Mladenovac who are fighting for better salaries and better working conditions.

London District Communist Party has called for former Labour MPs who have resigned to join the so called Independent Group to resign their seats and stand in a by-election. Noting that three of the MPs Joan Ryan, Chuka Ummuna, and Mike Gapes represent London constituencies Steve Johnson Secretary of London CPB pointed out that all were elected on a left-wing anti-austerity Labour manifesto which included a commitment to accept the EU referendum result.

The government of "Movimento 5 Stelle" and the right-wing party "Lega" in Italy is giving rise to anti-popular policies. In education, the reduction of social spendings and subordination to the interests of the capital are among the "European objectives" that the new government strictly follows. In November, the Minister of the Interior, Matteo Salvini, declared the will to allocate 200 millions of euros for the installation of security cameras in Italian schools, calling this measure “Safe Schools”. Recently, the same government approved the budget law leading to a cut of 4 billion € in education.

On Tuesday, February 26, PAME held a Press Conference for the Developments in the Greek Trade Union Movement.

The Press Conference was held at the city of Kalamata, where is to take place the 37th Congress of the GSEE and started with the question.

Very high participation in the national strike of logistics promoted by USB against repression, dismissals and the system of procurement in the sector. Percentages ranging from 50 to 80 per cent of memberships have closed or greatly slowed down work in the warehouses of the main logistics hubs of Piacenza, Caserta, Fiano, Cremona, Lodi, Florence, etc..

The Workers’ Party in Cork have expressed serious concern at last night’s (Friday) major fire at a recycling centre near Glanmire which was attended by 11 units of Cork city and county fire brigade.

CouncillorTed Tynan said that there was a very real concern about the safety of recyclingcentres and accused the Environmental Protection Agency and local authoritiesof not doing enough to ensure that such units were made safe.

The procedure for the confirmation of the delegates at the 37th GSEE Congress confirms the estimation of PAMEthat this is not a Workers’ Congress!

The practices followed by the GSEE leadership (PASKE, DAKE, SYRIZA, Vassilopoulos Group) in the elections of the unions have nothing to do with the collective processes and the real participation of the workers. ELECTION FRAUD IS HORRIFYING.

On Thursday, February 21, workers of Municipalities held a National Strike and Demonstrations all over Greece.

Main demand of the strike was the protection of the benefit to municipality workers for Dangerous and Unhealthy Work, a benefit that the Government wants to abolish. It is in this sector where the workers have suffered dozens of “work accidents” with more than 50 workers killed in the workplaces the last years.
