By World Federation of Trade Unions

Fight Back News Service is circulating the following Dec. 22 statement from the World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU).

The World Federation of Trade Unions extends its class solidarity to the struggles of Ethiopian working class and youth against the foreign investments and the destruction of natural environment in Ginchi, Ethiopia.

The WFTU representing 92 million workers in 126 countries condemns the actions of the Ethiopian government which cost the lives of 75 people since the middle of November; we express our condolences to the families of the victims of the police atrocities.

We call the workers of Ethiopia to continue their struggle, we strongly believe that the natural resources and the environment belong to the working class, not the national and international capitalists. We want to remind that the workers are not alone; they have on their side the workers of the world when they fight for their rights in every country of the world.
