Revolutionary and anticapitalist organizations of countries from throughout the world Meeting in Amsterdam in the Netherlands at the call of the Executive Committee of the Fourth International, demand from the Mexican government led by Felipe Calderón the immediate resolution of the conflict arising from the illegal closure of the company Luz y Fuerza del Centro.

For our organizations, it is perfectly clear that the mass dismissal of forty-four thousand workers, organized within the Mexican electricians trade union (SME), had no other goal than the privatization of the electrical industry the destruction of a democratic and combative trade union. Two years after the beginning of the conflict, the SME continues to carry out an exemplary, internationally-recognized fight back.

On September 13th, 2011, the government of Felipe Calderón, via the Secretary of Government, undertook to ensure the re-employment of 16,599 women and men workers who had fought against the liquidation of the company, as well as the release of 12 electrician political prisoners, unjustly imprisoned. Up to now, the government has not respected its commitments.

We demand that the immediate reinstatement of the workers in struggle and the release of the political prisoners.
