FUT will continue with marches against amendments
The United Workers Front (FUT for its Spanish acronym) said they plan to continue with the mobilizations in the streets. Marcela Arellano, from the Ceols, a subsidiary of FUT, clarified they will keep on the sidelines of a referendum petition, filed by other sectors, but their struggle will focus on the amendments processed in the Assembly.
The FUT and the CONAIE expect for next week to conduct a strategic design workshop to identify the way to proceed in 2015. Within the proposals are national mobilizations and the revocation of the AP Assemblymen.
Arellano said that unions are in a regrouping process, because six months ago some supported the government, but today there would be a change of direction.
Arellano stressed on the need for mobilizations not only of unions and indigenous, “but an uprising or the people´s strike, because if we do not go the way of referendum, we would encounter with public institutions controlled by the government.”
Pablo Serrano, current President of the FUT, said: “The only way to make this government understand is with mobilizations, because the criteria we have filed with the Court have been for nothing, what is left for the people are the streets to show they do not agree with the government policies.”
