(en) CGT-LKN Nafarroa closes with a demonstration to the headquarters of the Community of Madrid a general strike with little impact on the productive fabric [machine translation]

Date Wed, 18 Nov 2020 10:37:18 +0200

Outstanding Mobilizations Union Social ---- Little impact of the general strike in the Community of Madrid called by the General Labor Confederation. From CGT they value as positive the simple fact of going out against the "predatory model" of Isabel Díaz Ayuso. ---- Without "cheating the loner" but also without defeatism. This is how CGT assumes that the day of general strike in the Community of Madrid has not reached the status of a "social strike" under which it was called but that it has served as a first step to mobilize various social and union sectors in Madrid. for the neoliberal policies of Isabel Díaz Ayuso and the Popular Party.
The demonstration that started from Cibeles and ended in Puerta del Sol, in front of the regional government headquarters, began at 5:00 p.m. Around a thousand people have marched under slogans such as "the virus is capitalism" and shouts in favor of public health. In addition to CGT, organizations such as Marea Blanca- MEDSAP, Anticapitalistas, Fridays for Future or Marea Verde have supported the mobilization today, November 11.

But that push has not been translated in recent weeks into greater convening capacity. Although the date was modified to add more organizations to today's strike, November 11, economic uncertainty and health precautions themselves have acted as a demobilizing factor, the CGT acknowledges.

During the day, however, actions have been carried out in logistics centers such as Decathlon and Amazon in the polygons south of Madrid. Likewise, several informational pickets have toured the health centers of Leganés and have converged on the Severo Ochoa Hospital in the Pepinero municipality, one of the most affected by the health situation of the Community.

The mobilization had a main objective of defense of public health and against privatizations. "Evictions continue, layoffs increase, while a few profit from public money," says Santiago de la Iglesia, for whom the denunciation of neoliberal policies justifies a call like the one today. "Going out to the streets is always a success, it is useless to stay at home, we cannot leave the streets to the extreme right", defends this union member.

In the must is the discussion on the problems of coordination and understanding of organizations and social movements in the region. "Everyone is clear that the government of the Community of Madrid deserves a response commensurate with the aggression it is committing," says de la Iglesia, before concluding "but we already know that it is difficult to reach consensus in Madrid" .
