“As a human being, as a worker, as pioneers of the labour struggle, I strongly believe in that if we look and stand together for concrete actions, for appropriate solutions, our tears, our pains will be disappeared and at the end, we may establish a new world order as well as decent working life for all.”said Yalçın.“We want to live in a world where those who worry about the melting glaciers in Antarctica may fell the same feelings and pains for those who are suffering and exploited in Africa, Asia and Europe. We want to live in a world where we all equally share the opportunities the world offers us. We want to live in such a world where those who supply arms to terrorist organizations for their proxy wars and mighty appetite may at least once be sensitive to the nations seeking clean water, bread, and works to survive. This is precisely what trade unionism is.” also Yalçın said.

“42 people hold as much wealth as the 3.7 billion who make up the poorest half of the world’s population. Also, the 10 richest countries income is 77 times higher than the 10 poorest countries. As this enormous global injustice and unfair distribution of income bring with it a significant potential for conflict, they also cause other social problems such as poverty, hunger etc.”said Esen.
