The World Federation of Trade Unions participates in the 45th Session of ALC which is taking place in Cairo, Egypt from 8-15 April 2018 with the participation of trade unions from the whole Arab World.

The participation of the WFTU affirms the historic bonds among the Arab workers and the International class oriented trade union movements which dates from the foundation of the WFTU.

The workers face low salaries and delay in the payment of their allowances, while many of the graduates live in unemployment despite the need of the state and the citizens for more services.

We reaffirm our position for public and high quality health services for all the people in Mauritania and we demand the improvement and observation of this crucial sector workers’ working and living conditions.

We also remember the death of fishmonger Mohcine Fikri, crushed by a dumpster trying to oppose the seizure of his fish, October 28, 2016 in Elhoceima in the Rif, another Moroccan region.

Sudanese Communist Party suffers from continuous attacks towards its cadres. Recently two comrades, Fathi Elfadl and Taj Alsir Othman Babu, were arrested by the security forces.

Sudan has witnessed mass demonstrations against the regime's economic policy resulting in serious deterioration in people's living conditions. While the Party calls for the strengthening of the building of people's resistance committees for mass actions across various sectors in workplaces, residential areas, schools, universities among workers, farmers, youngsters, women and students, Sudanese regime continues to target cadres of the Sudanese Communist Party.

On February 15, following the resignation of Jacob Zuma from the post of President of the South African Republic (SAR), the SAR Parliament elected Vice-President Cyril Ramaphosa as the country’s new head of state.

Mr Ramaphosa is the leader of SAR’s ruling African National Congress party. He has contributed much to the fight of the South African people against apartheid and to the establishment of a democratic society in SAR.

sacpThe SACP joins the great majority of South Africans, not least comrades across our Alliance in welcoming President Jacob Zuma's belated resignation. This is something that should have happened a long time ago.

The levels of parasitic looting of public resources that have occurred under President Zuma's watch, the firing of ministers who have stood in his way, the erosion of the hard won rule of law, the perversion of key state institutions notably in the criminal justice system, the manipulation of the public broadcaster, and the auctioning off of our national sovereignty in the pursuit of private accumulation have caused huge damage to our country. The principal victims of the state capture agenda in which President Zuma has been central has had a particularly devastating impact on the working class and the rural and urban poor.

COSATUThe Congress of South African Trade Unions welcomes the resignation of President Jacob Zuma. This resignation was long overdue. We do laud him for finally doing the right thing and freeing the country from what was a momentous week of political turmoil.

This decision will hopefully allow the country to move away from the relentless partisan fighting, the prolonged political gridlock, and also the damaging corruption scandals. Now the ANC has an opportunity to work to consolidate the gains of our country's young democracy and rescue many poor people from the clutches of poverty.
