Italians to Go on General Strike


General strikes are scheduled by the Italian General Confederation of Labor (CGIL) in major cities.

June 26, 2010 (Hamsayeh.Net) - More shrikes are scheduled across Italy against recent government budgetary cuts once again targeting working class population.

The government of Silvio Berlusconi had of this year. General strikes are scheduled until the Italian General Confederation of Labor (CGIL) in major cities including Palermo, L’Aquila, Milan, Toscana and Piemonte regions. Strikers plan to stop working for four hours in the private sector and eight hours in the public sector.

Also employees working for Italy’s national airline Alitalia plan a general strike in coming days. The country’s Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi reassured people that new measures are not directed at pensioners or working people but instead aim at reducing administrative spending.

Italy under its billionaire Prime Minister has been a forerunner at implementing the neo-liberal economic criteria following the US invasion of oil rich Iraq. Like so many other European countries, Italy began to accumulate vast amounts of debt under the assumption that US-NATO wars in Iraq and Afghanistan would soon inject unlimited quantities of oil into western economies thus reversing the losses incurred during that period. But prolongation of Iraqi crisis and continuation of war in Afghanistan dealt a major blow to the plan bursting the big bubble and leading to 2008 western financial collapse.
