the statement:

Full Support for the Ghazl El-Mahalla Workers STRIKE

Today we stand, hand in hand with the workers of Ghazl el-mahalla, and
with all of Egypt’s workers; we stand in solidarity with their struggle
against a state which have constantly worked on draining and impoverishing
the masses of workers and poor for the interest of the rich minority.

We stand against the company’s decisions, and we raise our voices with the
voices of Ghazl el-Mahalla’s workers, in their righteous fight for their
rights and demands for better life. And we consider all anti-strike
statements, threats and propaganda made by the Pro-Moubarak General
Federation of Trade Unions and the Labour Ministry as being another vile
attempt by the state to attack the workers’ movement in Ghazl el-Mahalla,
but the level of steadfastness and commitment shown by the workers can not
but give us and all the workers in the region and the world the will and
power and hope to act for change, today our support is essential, it is
needed to uncover the injustice and the ongoing discrimination and
exploitation that all of us suffer from every day.

We the undersigned, give full support to workers on strike in Ghazl
El-Mahalla and we believe that their demands are righteous and just, and
we urge workers around the world to rise against oppression and
exploitation, because today’s fight is the fight of everyone of us for a
better world, for a world free of poverty, exploitation and oppression.

In addition, we salute the initiative of the Kafr El-Dowar workers and the
Estate-Tax workers as well as university students, legal centres and
social and political movements who stood in solidarity with the strike.

Whether in Lebanon, Egypt, Syria or any other country, our fight is
common, our enemy is common, it is the state and it’s imperialist allies,
it is the rich minority who feed on our hunger and misery. Our ruling
elites, share the same tradition of harassment and assault against
workers, their laws are made to protect them from us, their voices come
hand in hand with police bats and arrests, such regimes gives no mercy,
and we shall not show them any as well. They have their weapons and
soldiers, we have our will, commitment, and we have nothing but a world to
