A warning action – a short stopping of lorry transport across the entire territory of Russia is taking place, in protest at long-distance lorry drivers having to pay thousands of rubles to re-fuel their truck in one go. Their patience is running out over this. Some driver-owners have had to take out loans to cover costs, and have been unable to pay back the money they owe. The rising fuel cost is threatening to take them out of business. Drivers have being paying less for stolen diesel, at 20 rubles a litre, especially around Moscow, but that loophole is being closed off. There then awaits a social explosion.

On 17th February, Russian trade unions held a picket outside the Mexican embassy in Moscow in protest against violations of workers’ rights in Mexico. The picket was held for about an hour and a letter handed into the embassy with the demands of the international trade union movement. The maximum number of people allowed to stand and show solidarity with the Mexican workers was ten. Despite the freezing minus 20 temperature, nearly twice that number of people turned up. The police on duty said that no more than 10 people at once could stand and demonstrate and insisted that demonstrators replaced one another in front of the embassy to keep the number at 10. The protestors held a banner with the words “Mexico is anti-union territory”. The level of anti-union repression in Mexico is equal to that of South Korea. In South Korea, each year trade union activists are subjected to brutal suppression and strike are suppressed by police and the army. The labour legislation violated international standards, especially regarding the question of freedom of association.
The picket was held in the framework of global days of action for trade union rights in Mexico 14- 19 February.
We recall that the IMF, ICEM, ITF and UNI are calling on affiliates to take action from February 14 until and as close as possible to the fifth anniversary of the Pasta de Chonchos tragedy on February 19.
The demands are
1:Hold employer and government officials accountable for the Pasta de Chonchos mine explosion that killed 65 miners on February 19, 2006,

2. Abolish systemic violation of workers’ freedom of association,

3. End the use of force by the state or private parties to repress workers’ legitimate demands for democratic unions, better conditions, etc,

4. End the campaign of political persecution against the Mexican Miner’s Union and Mexican Electrical Workers’ Union.

The rector of Moscow State University (Press) (MGUP) Alexander Tsyganenko has been forced to resign from office, said one of the activists who oppose the policy of the rector, with reference to the Ministry of Education and Science.
According to Artem Khromov, activists welcomed the resignation of the rector, but they want fundamental change in university policy on students and teachers.

The company refers to an absence of a water contract, but the water charges have been paid to them on a regular basis since 2003 - the date of acquisition by Savina of the site with a water supply. The villagers can not get a response from management of the housing utilities department, about when water be connected the, although the contract is from February 4, 2011. As the villagers say, the many new grounds for water non-connection have been named – i.e. that "the house has not been used ", or there is a “rule” that says "you need to put a metre in the well to count the cost of water, etc etc.
In fact, the villagers suspect that the "repression" is associated with her son Constantine Savina, who was in 2010 elected to the Michurinsky village council, and regularly defends the rights of the villagers against the administration of Iskitimsky district.

CAIRO, Feb. 14. Itar-Tass. The army of Egypt today called for all who are still in downtown Cairo in Tahrir Square, to stop the protest, to clear the area and return to work. Military police in the "red berets" surrounded the area, trying to squeeze out the last of the demonstrators. According to available information, these people were given half an hour to get away from Tahrir square.

Within an hour of the Supreme Council of the armed forces was to come up with another statement in which, it "warns protesters of fomenting violent actions ."

On the eve of an attempt to dislodge the protestors and the army clashed, and once again paralyzed the central square of Egypt. Military police intended to disperse the camp, but encountered fierce resistance from the protesters.

Egypt's army has warned its citizens of non-continuation of the protests. It is said in a statement released today by the Supreme Council of the armed forces of Egypt under the number "5". It provides, inter alia, states that " any unauthorized performances are now considered illegal . "
" Under present conditions to continue the demonstrations and protests will have extremely negative consequences - the army spokesman said Ismail Othman. - It will be bad for the economy, and for Egyptians . "

From AUCPB editorial board. The army of Egypt is the largest Egyptian tycoon and is not going to part with its wealth. The true owners of the army of Egypt is the United States. Under Mubarak, the army was maintained by the U.S. and has been "stuffed" with the U.S. military advisors, trainers and agents of the CIA, together with U.S. dollars

(Comment from FB-AUCPB - People were finding it quite strange if not amusing to hear people talking about the Egyptian army “being on the side of the protestors”. Is it really? We don’t seem to think so.)


In Moscow on 14 February from 19:00 to 20:00 hours on Pushkin Square, a rally of solidarity with Urusov took place
Urusov is a new type of political prisoner in Russia's recent history: a worker leader who was able to organize a trade union organization in the remote (Sahka) Yakutsk village of Udachny, and yet paid the price for this by losing his freedom. Since June 2009, the union leader, having risked conflict with the larger diamond company ALROSA, is now behind bars. (FB-comment - ALROSA was a large Soviet state owned company called “Yakutalmaz” until it was stolen from the Soviet people by pro-U.S. zionist puppet Boris Yelstin and his mafia bandits in 1992 and renamed ALROSA).
Despite the fact that the previous court's decision was overturned by the Supreme Court, Udachny court affirmed its earlier decision, and again, Urusov was sentenced to 6 years in prison. The court decision sparked strong reaction among trade unions and rights defenders. But despite the protests around the world, Urusov remains in custody.

Aug. 27, after reaching an agreement on the establishment of a conciliation commission, the protest was suspended. The Commission began work, but on Sept. 3, 2008 Urusov was arrested by the Drug Control Squad at the front door of his house.
In Urusova home, 70 grams of drugs were "confiscated", and not by someone else, but by the head of the Mirny (Drug Control Squad) S. Rudov, and was not too lazy to travel over 600 km to get Urusov.
Urusov himself in a statement handed to a lawyer, described his arrest as a kidnapping with beatings and threats. He was forced to sign a confession or be killed: "Either die here in the woods, or sign and stay alive."
December 29, 2008 Mirninsky g.Udachnogo District Court presided by Judge Guseva Y. Urusov Valentin Yakovlevich was sentenced to 6 years of imprisonment in a penal colony and 100 000 rubles penalty according to article 228 part 2 of the Criminal Code.

He was released from custody at the courthouse.
But on May 26 Mirny district court again sentenced him to imprisonment. The sentence was reduced to 5 years after re-appeal.
Meanwhile, in January-March 2009, all union activists at the company Alrosa have been laid off and entered onto a" black list ".

The large Arab revolution continues to gain momentum. On the background of recent developments in Egypt have intensified riots in Yemen and Algeria (Bahrain and others). Inspired by the resignation of Hosni Mubarak, several hundred protesters gathered in the center of Sana'a and marched to the Egyptian embassy, demanding the resignation of another political longevity - Yemeni President Abdullah Saleh, who has been in power since 1978.

Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh postponed his visit to the United States against the backdrop of protests taking place in his country. The visit will take place in late February. They noted that the official reason for this decision was "the situation in the region, sharply reacting to the events in Egypt.”
The last major demonstration in Yemen took place on February 4 in Al-Mukalla - the administrative center of the province of Hadramout. The rally ended with the death of four people, when police used live ammunition to disperse the crowd of protesters who called for independence of the southern part of Yemen.
