Support of the workers strikes for higher wages

A wave of workers’ strikes is developing in several countries of Europe. They have in common the requirements for higher salaries. In Britain, Belgium, Italy, Turkey, France… hundreds of strikes take place in all types of companies. These strikes, their demand and their class character inspire the workers, the trade-unionists, and masses of European countries.

The workers refuse the decrease of their wages because of the high rates of inflation, especially the rocketing prices in food, energy, heating, housing, transport… The strikers, male and female, struggle for real increases of wages that at least cover the inflation. These strikes for higher wages are today the core of class struggle, the struggle between Labour and Capital.

The high profits, especially those of the monopolies of energy, transport, food, weapons, the banks, are largely denounced : they show the nature of capitalist imperialist system, which means over-exploitation, poverty for the masses and war. By striking for higher salaries, the workers not only defend their vital rights but defend also the interests of all the masses. They also express the refusal of broad sectors of workers to pay the consequences of the imperialist war in Ukraine.

We support these strikes and call for their extension in all sectors in all countries.

We support the actual struggle of the workers in France, who will be in a general strike the 18th of October, for higher wages for all the workers.

We call for developing nationally and internationally the solidarity with the present movements of strikes and all these that will inevitably develop.
