Small ray of hope

Postby Tim Drayton » Wed Jan 25, 2017 2:46 pm

A small ray of hope for the left as the world rings out to the sound of the jackboots of approaching fascism.

In Turkey, currently ruled under rolling three-month state of emergency periods that grant de-facto dictatorial powers to Erdoğan and seem likely to carry on being renewed until the constitutional amendment that will grant de-jure dictatorial powers to Erdoğan passes through a referendum, 2,200 members of the United Metal Workers Union went on strike at the GE Grid Solution, ABB Elektrik, Schneider Enerji and Schneider Elektrik plants on the morning of 20 January. A decree with the force of law banning the strike was issued in the afternoon of the same day, but the workers ignored the ban and remained on strike. On 23 January the union signed a new two-year collective labour agreement with the employer. Perhaps there remains some truth in the old slogan, however adverse the circumstances, 'The workers united will never be defeated.'

I think Erdocunt needs another 2200 spaces in his prisons for these guys. Any minute now he will round them up and lock em up.

What's new, Americas monster can do as it wishes, whilst the corrupt EU look on.

Well, you may not be far short of the mark. There was a report saying that they are planning to arrest 17,000 social media users for posts they have made, but they are waiting for space to be freed up at custody suites before they do so.
