31/10/2020, Tilburg: Protest in support of Polish women’s rights

Protest in support of Polish Women’s rights
Saturday, 31 October 2020, 5 PM, Stadhuisplein, Tilburg

JOIN US IN SUPPORTING THE FIGHT FOR WOMEN’S RIGHTS! 💪⚡

On Thursday, October 22rd, 2020 Polish Constitutional Court ruled abortion in case of “severe and irreversible fatal defect or incurable illness that threatens the fetus’ life” illegal. This means almost a total ban on abortion in the country.

Hundreds of thousands of our sisters are on the streets protesting this cruel decision. Let’s show them our support and love! 💪

Let’s make the world know what is happening in Poland! 📢

In this time we have to stand together, no matter what country are we from, what do we believe in, what is our culture or age. Let’s show them that we hear them, and we’ve got them.

Join us in supporting Polish superheroines! 🦸‍♀️Come to the square next to the city theater on Saturday at 5 PM!

Bring your banners, bring your energy!

Let our shouts be heard in Poland! 🇵🇱

Because Women’s rights are humans rights! 💪

*By taking part in the demonstration you’re agreeing to obeying the code of conduct (see below)* Continue reading

Vion rejects claim for compensation Romanian migrant worker, our fight continues

Vion rejects claim for compensation Romanian migrant worker, our fight continues

In the past few weeks, the “Sluit Vion” (ShutDown Vion) campaign has been supporting Alex, a Romanian migrant worker. Alex worked through an employment agency for Vion’s slaughterhouse, got injured and was subsequently fired. Because housing is linked to work, he also lost his accommodation.

Sluit Vion considered this dismissal to be completely unlawful and demanded compensation of 2500 euros for loss of income and costs of accommodation. We had several meetings with an HR manager and on July 23rd we went to the head office in Boxtel to get an answer from the management. The management, represented by the head of communication, listened to us but said that workers themselves are responsible and that Vion cannot be held accountable on matters such as housing. On July 27th we received an official rejection of our claim. As far as Vion is concerned, Alex does not receive any compensation because, according to the company, he was never fired.

Sluit Vion is not satisfied with this, sticks to the claim and is looking for ways to draw attention to both the claim and the broader malpractices that are exemplified by this case.

Alex’s story is no exception. Workers are routinely treated like dirt. We therefore call upon all Vion employees to report any problems with this company.

26-6-2020 Shut down Vion – in solidarity with the workers

Shut down Vion – in solidarity with the workers

Friday, 26 Juni, Boxtel

We, a coalition of organizations and concerned citizens, believe that Vion should close down immediately to prevent the spread of corona. Vion itself should provide decent and safe housing and care for all employees, and pay and compensate all employees.

Therefore, on the afternoon of Friday, June 26th, we will be at Vion Boxtel entrance to demand that the slaughterhouse closes immediately.

The demonstration has been announced to the municipality. We will of course comply with the corona measures.

SLUIT VION (SHUT DOWN VION) is a campaign in which the following oarganizations and initiatieves cooperate: Alle Dieren Vrij; Animal Rebellion; Vrije Bond Noord-Brabant; Autonomen Brabant; Ongehoord and Earthlings. SLUIT VION is concerned about the health and well-being of the people working at Vion. About the health and well-being of the poeple living near by. About the health and well-being of the animals being needlessly slaughtered and turned into meat. The campaign intends to change that: CLOSE VION!!

20-6-2020: Solidarity protest during World Refugees Day

In the name of stopping the spread of the virus, Europe has in fact created the unsanitary and unsafe conditions in which the virus thrives. We call an end to the violence against migrants, to be replaced by the solidarity necessary to deal with this global crisis. We demand a resumption of rescue at sea, adequate health provisions upon arrival, housing instead of detention, and support for struggling health programs across the world.

On World Refugee Day (June 20th), at 14 hrs, we call for protests in as many cities as possible. In that way, we express our solidarity with refugees. We will express that solidarity thorugh banners, placards and slogans.

Remember that staying safe is also an act of solidarity, so keep your safe distance from each other and from passers-bye Take a picture or make a video and share it with us, so we can link up into a virtual long-distance demonstration.

See you safely and strongly in solidarity, 20 June, 14.00 hours, on the square next to the Concertzaal, naast de Concertzaal, corner Schouwburgring/Bisschop Zwijssenstraat, Tilburg.
