Programme de lutte de la Coordination internationale des travailleurs des mines*

La 1ère Conférence internationale des travailleurs des mines, tenue à Arequipa/Pérou en 2013 avec les représentants de 25 pays de 4 continents, a marqué un pas important dans le regroupement des travailleurs des mines du monde entier. Nous avons été dominée par le principe que nous les travailleurs des mines et nos familles devons coopérer au niveau international et coordonner nos luttes si nous voulons devenir une force supérieure face aux monopoles internationaux miniers et à leurs gouvernements. Dans notre Conférence fondatrice, nous avons décidé : « Il est de moins en moins possible aujourd’hui de s’imposer aux monopoles internationaux des mines tout en étant isolés les uns des autres et en se restreignant chacun à son problème local. Ce qu’il nous faut est l’unité des travailleurs dans le monde entier ! »²
