Respect!

En primer lugar quiero expresar mi solidaridad con los compañeros estibadores en conflicto y desde Buenos Aires /Argentina le decimos ; "que no hay victoria sin lucha y seguramente que con unidad y organizacion VENCERAN. En segundo lugar les recomiendo no confiar en la DIRIGENCIA de ITF han demostrado durante varios conflictos en los puertos que no solo no respaldan con hechos concretos la lucha de los estibadores sino tambien los traicionan. Hoy se alegan la representacion de los estibadores suecos algo que no es asi .los trabajadores le dan la espalda a los burocratas que negocian a espalda de los trabajadores. Viva la lucha de los estibadores suecos!!!!!

Viva la lucha internacional!!
