Towards a General Strike

The unions Confederación General del Trabajo (CGT), Confederación Nacional del Trabajo (CNT), Solidaridad Obrera (SO) and Coordinadora Sindical de Clase (CSC) met on June 24 in Madrid to discuss how we can respond to the attack we the workers are under, an attack without precedents, one that bushwhacks our acquired rights, one made a reality by the government and European institutions, the bosses and the markets. How we can coordinate a struggle, and a response, based on class unity and action.

All of the unions expressed their complete rejection of the policies that through successive labor reforms, pension system cuts, collective bargaining reforms and cuts in the public services aim to send the hefty IOU to the workers, and the weakest sectors of the society, who then foot the bill for capital's crisis.

We also agreed that a shared response, one that was above our differences, was needed to mobilize the workers in a unified struggle, with the participation of all those union organizations, workers groups and social movements who are firmly against the policy of social pacts and demobilization promoted by the institutional unionism of CCOO and UGT.

Atento Wages War on Freedom of Expression

A few days after the formation of the CNT union in  Atento in Madrid, fascist views have emerged and there has been repression against its delegate, Suso, both by the company and members of the union bureaucracy. Perhaps what hurts some is the presence of real anarchosyndicalism and fear the company and others have of the courage and determination of a CNT which fights, showing its strength through direct action (picket on April 25 to denounce the workplace harassment against an anarchist comrade in the Barcelona 061-Emergency Service).

The CNT in the IT Sector

The CNT in the IT Sector

The time is ours! For continued occupation of the plazas and disobedience!

A statement by the anarchosyndicalist CNT of Spain on the May protests and occupations which have swept the country.

The countless demonstrations and occupations that are taking root in the main squares of cities and villages since the 15th are a clear example of the organizational capacity of the people when they decide to be the protagonists of their own lives; overcoming apathy, resignation, and the absence of a self-awareness with which to articulate solutions to take on and construct alternatives to the many problems that today face all of us: workers, the unemployed, students, immigrants, retirees, the precarious...

The organizational formulas developed in these mobilizations prove the viability of direct participation through assemblies for taking decisions that channel our aspirations and demands and make us overcome individualism. We become protagonists, rather than spectators of a system based in representation and delegating authority, which erases our individuality. Assemblies, a rotating microphone, working groups, responsibility, capacity, organization, self-responsibility, coordination, involvement and visibility are the collective teeth that move our gears, capable of challenging the institutions and provoking an expectation and public debate that have eclipsed the electoral campaign and the recurring contents of the national and international press.
