FISE CONDEMNS THE NEW MASSACRE OF PALESTINIANS BY THE MURDERER STATE OF ISRAEL

14/5/2018

FISE, the World Federation of Teachers Union, affiliated member of WFTU, denounces the new murder of tens of Palestinians in Gaza, on Monday 14th May and demands the immediate stop to the slaughter by Israeli forces. Right now tens of unarmed Palestinians are being murdered, injured and threatened by the Israeli forces, because they are protesting against the transfer of the USA embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and because they demand the right to go back to their land that was taken from them on May 15th 1948.

At least 41 Palestinians have been murdered and more than 2.000 injured in Gaza, raising the toll to 100 Palestinians murdered since the beginning of their protests on March 30. The Israeli army continues to shoot the heroic Palestinian fighters in cold blood.

FISE expresses its solidarity and full support to the entire Palestinian people, who legitimately and fairly fight for their right to have their own homeland, their own state, independent and sovereign, next to Israel, at the borders of 1967 and with East Jerusalem as their capital.

We demand:

That the aggressions of murderer-state of Israel stop immediately.

That the USA embassy not be transferred in Jerusalem. Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Palestine.

We strengthen solidarity with the people of Palestine.

We condemn the imprisonment of the young Palestinian, Waed Tamimi, by Israeli forces

 

10th May 2018

PRESS RELEASE

We condemn the imprisonment of the young Palestinian, Waed Tamimi, by Israeli forces

 The World Federation of Teachers Unions FISE denounces the barbarity of the murderous Israeli state, which arrests and imprisons young pupils for defending their homes.

On Thursday, May 10th, Israeli special forces invaded the Tammi family home in the village Nambi Saleh, Palestine, and arrested Waed Tamimi, 18 years old, brother of 17-year-old Ahed Tamimi, who, along with her mother, remains imprisoned in Israeli prisons.

The Israeli killer, having become audacious due to the US support, and other imperialist governments, escalates violence and authoritarianism against the heroic Palestinian people. Israel arrests and imprisons young children, pupils, students, young fighters who defend their homes.

FISE stands by the Palestinian people in his righteous struggle for his own independent state, with East Jerusalem as its capital city. We demand the immediate release of all Palestinian political prisoners and members of the Tamimi family.

WFTU MAY 9 STATEMENT: Long Live the May 9th Epopee!

08 May 2018

Long Live the May 9th Epopee!

On May 9, 1945, in occupied Berlin by the Red Army, the Nazis signed their surrender to the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, putting an end to World War II or the Great Patriotic War.

On June 22, 1941, the Nazis invaded Soviet borders and arrived at the gates of Moscow mobilizing about 4.5 million soldiers with the support of 600,000 vehicles, 750,000 horses and about 2,700 aircraft (more than half of the German air force). Forced to retreat because of the resistance, the new Nazi strategy aimed at taking control of Stalingrad, where in July 1942 the most cruel and violent battle of the whole war began.

The Red Army and the armed people resisted against the conquest of every block, every street, every house, every room. Workers’ militias were formed. One of the stages of this heroic struggle was the tractor factory where the workers entered the fight against heavily armed invading troops. On February 2, 1943, Stalingrad was liberated.

When the Red Army was already advancing to the capital of the Nazi state, Hitler commits suicide, on April 30 and May 9, 1945, the Germans accept the surrender to the Soviets.

This was a decisive strategic victory for the future of mankind. It changed the global correlation of forces in favor of workers and peoples and has boosted national liberation movements and decolonization. It was on this historic track that, on October 3, 1945, the World Federation of Trade Unions was founded.

However, 73 years after that date, the threat of a new World War hovers over international relations. US imperialism and its allies of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) promote conflicts that seriously threaten world peace and make, in old and new forms, fascism and intolerance grow in various forms.

The WFTU salutes the anniversary of this epopee by reaffirming its commitment to the defense of world peace, the rights of the peoples, in particular the working class while being convinced of the socialist perspective as the future for humanity.

Long live the 9 of May of 1945, victory day of the Soviet Union over nazism and fascism!

Those servants of exploitation and imperialism who nowadays try to re-write historical facts on slanders and lies, must fail.

Eternal reverence for the millions of soldiers, for the men and women who fell on this mission for Humanity!

 WFTU: Announcement on the 200 years since the birth of Karl Marx

 WFTU: Announcement on the 200 years since the birth of Karl Marx

On 5th May 1818 the great founder of the scientific world view of the working class Karl Marx was born in Trier of Prussia. His theoretical work and his action paved the way to the world working class to realize its historical role and to struggle for the end of the exploitation.

By analyzing the laws of the capitalist mode of production in his works like the Critique of Political Economy (1859) and the Capital (1867), he proved that capitalism is incompatible with the workers prosperity and an obstacle to social development. He also highlighted the necessity of the class oriented struggle of the masses for the establishment of the socialist society.

Karl Marx, along with Friedrich Engels, played a key role in the foundation of the International Workingmen’s Association (the first International) in 1864 in London, by writing its first “Declaration” and a series of its documents. Τhe International Workingmen’s Association, which was the predecessor of the World Federation of Trade Unions, united the labor movements of various countries under a joint proletarian fight and  Karl Marx vigorously fought for the continuation of its militant trajectory.

Nowadays that the contradictions and rivalries among the monopolies are exacerbating, provoking wars and misery to the peoples, the work of Karl Marx will always be a polyvalent weapon in the hands of workers and ordinary people all over the world in their everyday struggle for their working and social rights and for the abolition of exploitation of man by man.

 Solidarity message to Colombian teachers

Dynamic strike action on May 9th and 10th is organized by the Colombian Federation of Teachers FECODE. At the same time, trade unions take organizational and information initiatives by organizing conferences, artistic and cultural interventions.

The government has cut down resources for education by 60 million, resulting in downgrading infrastructure in education, lack of teachers in the schools, impoverishment of the health system. The new contract that teachers’ unions are called upon to sign is subordinate to the previous one.

The World Federation of Teacher Unions FISE, a member of the World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU), representing the working class movement among teachers, sends a solidarity message to the FECODE Federation. The struggle of teachers to improve their working terms so that the educational system meets the needs of working class children is a struggle for all workers.
