The European Regional Office of World Federation of Trade Unions on the occasion of the International Migrants Day 18th of December expresses its internationalist solidarity with the millions of migrant workers who abandoned their countries and their homes in order to escape poverty and the imperialist wars and conflicts.
All workers, whether they are foreigners or locals are class brothers and our struggles are common, no matter the nationality, race, color of skin or religion are.
It is our duty as the class based trade union movement in Europe to stand on the side of the immigrants, fight for the integration of our class brothers and sisters in local societies and the class-oriented struggles and to fight against the anti- immigrant policies of the European Union.
We must intensify our actions against imperialist barbarism, the termination of imperialist wars and the dissolution of NATO, which is the cause of the suffering of the peoples.
We need to struggle against the actions of the ultra-right wing fascist groups, against nationalism that is dividing working people, against racism and xenophobia, which enables capital to intensify its exploitation to the detriment of workers.
With our struggles we are asserting a peaceful world and a society of justice without poverty, wars and immigrants.
