Ολλανδία - Εκδήλωση αλληλεγγύη​ς στους απεργούς χαλυβουργο​ύς

Θα ήθελα να σας ενημερώσω για μια εκδήλωση που λαμβάνει χώρα κάποια χιλιόμετρα μακριά από τις "πύλες της φωτιάς". Αν και μακριά, η θέρμη της φλόγας ήταν αρκετή για να ζεστάνει τα πιο αγνά ανακλαστικά αλληλεγγύης στον αγώνα αυτό των Χαλυβουργών που ξεκίνησε αρκετούς πλέον μήνες πριν. 
Το μήνυμα αυτό σας το στέλνω  σαν "παλιός" αναγνώστης των ιστοχώρων σας, η λειτουργία των οποίων είναι απαραίτητη για όλους εμάς που οι συνθήκες μας πέταξαν στα  ξένα και θεώρησα αναγκαίο να συνεισφέρω έτσι με το μικρό αυτό λιθαράκι στην προσπάθεια που καταβάλλεται εδώ να δηλωθεί η αλληλεγγύη μας έμπρακτα. Επισυνάπτω την αφίσα της εκδήλωσης και παρακάτω παραθέτω το κείμενο που εντοπίζεται στην πίσω όψη της  αφίσας.
    
Τους αγωνιστικούς χαιρετισμούς από το παγωμένο Ντελφτ.      
----------------------      
In October, even though the annually steel production almost  doubled last year, the      
      management of Greek Steelworks SA decided to cut down salaries and dismiss many      
      workers using the crisis as an excuse. «On the 17th of October, our boss was clear: 5      
      hours a day and 40% salary reduction». Two days later, after a general assembly of 280      
      attendees the workers’ response was «If you proceed, we will go on strike». On the 31st      
      of October and only 5 minutes before 3 in the afternoon, the first dismissal was      
      delivered to a worker's house , followed by another 18 in the same evening. Within one      
      hour of the first dismissal, the workers had closed down the factory, went on strike and      
      26 days later, they were heard around the world.   

      Now, 3 months later and after a series of dismissals and blackmailing by the employer,      
      they continue their struggle receiving support from individuals, groups, unions,      
      federations and associations of workers worldwide. At the same time that Greek people      
      are forced into mass unemployment, poverty and exploitation by the  harsh austerity      
      policies of the IMF and the EU, the Steelworkers raise their voice for their own rights      
      and for the rights of all people. For them it’s a matter of      dignity and survival.      
      The struggle of the Steelworkers is not seeking and is not getting  any support from      
      trade-union confederations or government officials. For the past three months, they      
      keep on fighting with their own will and with the solidarity and the financial support of      
      the people.  
  
      Their struggle is our struggle. Their victory will be a victory for everyone that wants a      
      just society that offers everybody the right to work, to live decently and in dignity, a      
      society that is determined by the needs of the people. As a small solidarity action, we      
      made this call to meet, show our solidarity and collect some financial support for the      
      strikers.  
  
      The message of the strikers is clear: «It is either us or them».  Let’s join them in      
      shouting the answer, even purely symbolically and from 3,000 km away.      
      We invited you on Friday 10 February in Delft, at the Grand Cafe Verderop to support      
      our common struggle for justice. The solidarity event will begin  at 21:00 with a 10 min      
      documentary on the strike and a short discussion for it and its meaning for the Greek      
      society. At 22:00 the party begins. All proceeds from the party  (also wardrobe      
      proceeds) will be given as financial support to the workers on strike. Your participation      
      matters.
