Following the overwhelming international solidarity received after the squad attack on 9th October 2021, the CGIL decided to promote the establishment of an “ International Network of Antifascist Trade Unions”. A year later, in front of a large audience of international trade unionists in celebration of the struggle against all forms of violence, discrimination and oppression, the “Manifesto” proposal was launched as a synthesis of this Network commitment.
All over the world, far right, nationalist and sovereign forces - under different names and forms - are challenging the resilience of our democracies, promoting ideas of discrimination, intolerance, disintermediation, exclusion and oppression.
The world of work is and will always be on the other side: because it is work, which sets society on a path of progress, emancipation and justice; Work defines the human being certainly in its individual dimension, but also through its collective dimension. Work, whose respect and dignity are the basis of democracy itself. The following “Manifesto of the International Network of Antifascist Trade Unions” will be officially presented at an international session during the 19th National Congress of the CGIL in Rimini.
