For May Day 2016, Workers and Laborers Say: WE WILL NOT OBEY!

[A statement from PLASIT-BO, Textile Plant Union Platform-Batay Ouvriye (Workers Fight), in Haiti. Kreyol original is below.]

WE FIGHT FOR :

  • A living wage to meet the needs of our children, our families and ourselves. We demand 500 gourdes ($7.94) a day at the very least without increasing the quotas, and other social benefits ;
  • Good working conditions and respect for our union rights to defend our interests ;
  • A new Labor Code that protects all categories of workers against exploitation and humiliation ;
  • A social security system that protects us against line-of-duty accidents, illnesses, maternity and old age based on a real social protection net in the country ;
  • Comprehensive agrarian reform and technical support for peasants and other laborers in the rural areas ;
  • The country to regain its sovereignty to choose its own economic model to create wealth and work in our territory.

TEXTILE PLANT UNION PLATFORM (PLASIT-BO) INVITES ALL WORKERS AND LABORERS IN ALL SECTORS, POOR PEASANTS, THE UNEMPLOYED, STUDENTS, SERIOUS MILITANTS TO A DEMONSTRATION ON SUNDAY MAY 1ST, 2016 TO COMMEMORATE INTERNATIONAL WORKERS DAY.

WE ARE RALLYING AT 9 :00 A.M. IN FRONT OF THE INDUSTRIAL PARK (SONAPI) TO START THE MARCH ALONG THE AIRPORT ROAD, AROUND DELMA 18, PEYAN ROAD, BEL-AIR, AND TO REACH CHAMPS-DE-MARS.

THIS MAYDAY, WE ARE TAKING THE STREETS TO DEMAND OUR RIGHTS THAT ARE VIOLATED. WE STOP OBEYING THE EXPLOITING RULING CLASSES AND DISHONEST POLITICIANS ! LONG LIVE THE WORKERS AND LABORERS EVERYWHERE ! WE ARE THE ONES WHO CAN BREAK THE CHAINS BINDING OUR FEET !
