They are the ones who rob us : the rich are getting richer !

Inequality is growing. A recent Oxfam report reminds us : by 2018, 26 billionaires have concentrated as much money as half the world’s population !

The world’s richest man and owner of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, has 122 billion dollars. As Oxfam correctly points out, "the health budget in Ethiopia is equivalent to 1% of Bezos’ fortune."

The wealth of the world’s billionaires increased by $ 900 million last year, which means an increase of $ 2.5 billion a day. While the amount of money that has the poorest half of the world population fell by 11%.

And it is these people and a part of their servants who are currently meeting at the Davos Forum.

These numbers are just one example of the situation. The reality is that today there are millions of people dying of hunger, living the horror of wars, in exile, under exploitation, suffering with hatred

And we also suffer daily humiliation at work, mass layoffs, racism, machismo. This is the order of capitalism !

The organizations of the International Solidarity and Struggle Union Network reaffirm the importance of internationalist unionism.

Let us unite and strengthen this network with everyone who wants to organize to advance for those who produce wealth and establish the basis of a society whose goal is the satisfaction of the needs of all.
