The Libertarian Syndicalist Union (ESE Athens) sends support and solidarity greeting to the employees of the printing of AGR-Clarin newspaper in Argentina that are in multi-day struggle (occupation of the workplace), asking to revoke their colleagues layoffs.

We denounce the strikebreaking tactic of the employer, which in order to break the mobilization, he prints the Sunday edition of the newspaper in the neighboring country of Chile. The business committee of the AGR-Clarin workers sent a letter to the Chilean unions and in the union of Argentine truckers, asking for their solidarity: not to print or transfer the scabs form.

The struggle of the workers in the printing facilities of Clarin is part of the general struggle of the Argentine labor movement against the government’s austerity measures Macri, as well as against the anti-working-class choices of the bosses. The Macri government attacks on workers’ achievements and tries to remove rights and freedoms conquered through struggle. The attempt to repress and dismantle the self-managed Bauen Hotel in Buenos Aires, it’s one more example of the anti-labor aggression.

We are so far away from Argentina, but yet so close to the Argentinean workers’ struggles. We call every labor collective to stand in solidarity with the printing workers, by sending messages of support to Clarin.

Solidarity is the weapon of labor people. War to the bosses. Workers united never defeated.
