Romania: Stop union busting in Bucharest metro

At the beginning of 2021, Metrorex, a state-owned company that runs the Bucharest metro, fully backed by the Romanian government, started a union-busting campaign, announced pay cuts and lay-offs, revealing plans to put the subway system into insolvency. Metrorex and the Romanian government completely ignored USLM’s repeated requests to enter into dialogue. Instead, the company retaliated with a series of intimidation tactics: Union leader Ion Radoi received death threats on social media.

Four Million Dead: The Pandemic Marches On

Today, July 6 2021, AEST, the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic reached four million confirmed dead, with almost one-hundred and eight-five million aggregate cases. We can recall that from the initial outbreak in January 2020, the first million deaths weren't reached until September 11 that year, the second million on January 7th of 2021, and the third million on April 7. What will it be by the end of the year? Five, six million? As calculations come in, we will probably discover the fourth million mark was actually passed a few weeks ago.

Brazil: End the anti-union attacks on health workers

It is no secret that the Brazilian government's response to the COVID-19 crisis has been one of the worst in the world. A lethal combination of denial, public violation of the basic practices of social distancing recommended by the World Health Organization, and active sabotage of efforts to acquire vaccines.

Thailand: Yachiyoda must reinstate sacked union members

A Few Words About Chile and Australia

In 1970 the people of Chile had the temerity to elect the radical socialist Salvador Allende as their President, through a coalition of Christian leftists, social democrats, democratic socialists, radical liberals, and communists. The Allende government sought to nationalise major (and often foreign-owned) industries, engage in agrarian reform, increase minimum wages, employment, enhance social security, education, and public health.

Algerian Trade Unionist Jailed for Striking

Mourad Ghedia, President of the SNAPAP/CGATA Justice Sector Workers, has been arrested and placed under a detention order in El-Harrach prison. Join the LabourStart campaign calling for his immediate release.

Mr. Ghedia, a clerk by profession, had previously been suspended in 2012 for almost three years along with 57 other people for strike action, without any procedure having been followed or any supporting documents having been sent to them.

Canadian Unionist Jailed in Turkey

CUPE 4600 member Cihan Erdal has been unjustly jailed in Turkey since September 2020. CUPE is pressing the Canadian government to support Cihan as he prepares for trial in May, and to work to get him released from jail and safely home to Canada.

The next few weeks are critical. We need to make Cihan’s case a top priority for the Turkish government, and demand action.

Abstract Property is a Positive Right

Ancapology rests on the recognising negative rights (the right not to have something inflicted upon you, such as murder), but not positive rights (entitlements that place a burden on others, such as healthcare). That’s perfectly legit. Contrary to ancap misconception other ancoms don’t recognise universal positive rights either, but may choose to extend those within their own communities.
