FISE Condemns the Murder of the striker Abd Elsalam Ahmed Eldanf, from the company GLS/SEAM in Piacenza of Italy.
Comrade Abd Elsalam Ahmed Eldanf worker from Egypt, member of the Italian union USB, was picketing the strike in the company GLS/SEAM couriers, which was taking place against flexible working conditions imposed by the company. The employers gave orders to one of the drivers to move his truck against the picket line. The truck hit and killed the striker, father of 5 children.
Ruthless employers having the government as their ally, are picketing their profits playing with the lives of the workers. FISE condemns the employers as well as the governments, which are formulating laws according the interests of the employers and not the workers.
The escalation of oppression and repression has to be answered from the organized, class oriented trade union movement.
We express our class solidarity to the struggle of the workers of GLS/SEAM and USB union.
We call all teachers unions all over the world to massively condemn the murder of our comrade Abd Elsalam Ahmed Eldanf and express their solidarity.
WE DEMAND THE IMMEDIATE PUNISHMENT OF THE MURDERERS
We strengthen solidarity! – We strengthen the struggle!
