FISE Condemns the Massacre of immigrants in Melilla, Morocco


FISE, the World Federation of Teachers Union, an affiliated member of the WFTU, strongly condemns the barbaric and inhumane modern crime of the so-called “progressive” imperialism of Europe in Melilla, on the Spanish-Moroccan border.

The same forces that for centuries plundered the wealth of African countries and exploited its peoples as slaves, today kill hundreds of uprooted people in live transmission in cold blood.

The EU and the governments that cut the wages of Europe’s workers, impose barbaric anti-peoples’ policies, persecute those who resist and attack democratic and trade union rights within their own countries, also try to target the poor and oppressed of other countries, and cultivate racism to hide their brutal anti-workers’ policies.

The timing of the crime in Melilla and the cynical statements of the so-called “progressive” Prime Minister of Spain with the NATO summit in Madrid, is an additional reminder of NATO’s role in “protecting the people”. Another page in the Black Book on the crimes of European imperialism against the peoples.

The working class of the world is not divided by borders, color, religion, sex or race. Teachers and teachers’ unions around the world, we are united by the common struggle against poverty, unemployment, and uprooting. The common struggle against the system that breeds poverty and war.

FISE supports the common struggle of all workers against the barbaric imperialistic system.
