Economic Recession: Failure of Capitalism

Working People Must Defend Living Standards

The Socialist Party of Nigeria sees the Second Quarter 2016 report of National Bureau of Statistics which officially confirms the sliding of Nigerian economy into recession as a bitter confirmation of the failure of capitalism and the incapacity of Nigerian ruling elites to move the nation forward.

We call on the labour movement to reject and resist the current situation in which workers and the poor masses, who did not significantly benefit anything at the period of boom, are being made to bear the burden of the crisis of capitalism and failure of capitalist ruling elite.

We however call on them to match their words with action by coming out with concrete program of actions that would help win the demand.

LABOUR MUST ORAGANISE UNEMPLOYED YOUTHS, BUILD MASS RESISTANCE AND DEFEND YOUNG WORKERS

*Time to fight casualization, poverty wages, mass unemployment and underfunded education

The Campaign for Democratic and Workers’ Rights welcomes the decision of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to adopt a Youth Policy and convene a National Youth Conference on September 14 and 15.

This conference is being held against the background of what is widely seen as a grave economic and social crisis gripping the country. Nigeria’s very young population is facing a grim future unless there is rapid, radical change.

Attacks on Nasarawa Workers by the Police: We Call for Justice

• The Labour leadership should mobilize for a 24 hour general strike and nationwide mass actions to confront the monster of nonpayment of salaries across the country

The Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) condemns in absolute terms the killing and brutalization of protesting workers of Nasarawa State by trigger-happy police men in Lafia on Friday, July 29. We in the SPN call for the immediate arrest and prosecution of police officers who sanctioned and carried out this dastardly act. Labour must call immediate nationwide solidarity actions like mass protests and rallies as part of a campaign to ensure that the culprits are brought to book in order to serve as deterrent to others.

Oyo Workers insist on “No Pay No Work”

Determined Workers hold rallies at the NLC secretariat three days a week

It was an atmosphere filled with suspicion and apprehension when in the early hours of Friday, 17th June, 2016 as thousands of striking workers of Oyo State who gathered as usual at the state secretariat of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), were waiting for the Labour leaders for the report of the meeting held with the state government the previous day.

Despite all forms of efforts and pressures by the state government the rally still went ahead and was very massive as thousands of workers, including the market women and men, trooped out in their numbers to support the agitation against the planned privatisation of schools and non-payment of salary and pension arrears. The struggle that started at the beginning of June has not lost momentum.
