Unionists and political scientist justify strikes in Angola as lack of political will

The lack of political will is cited as one of the reasons for the wave of strikes, which is still a daily occurrence in Angola and mobilizes various segments of the population, which affects the lives of citizens.

Negotiations between the employer and the trade unions did not produce satisfactory results for the parties involved.

The government claims that there are not enough resources to meet the demands of the working class, but this argument does not convince most unions, who point to unnecessary expenses that have been incurred and should serve to meet their needs.
claims.

Since last August’s elections, the strike movement has intensified significantly, from the education sector to the health sector, including justice officials and technicians from the Attorney General’s Office.

The impact of these shutdowns on the national economy is still incalculable, and the diagnosis of direct damage to the lives of Angolans has never been made, as in the case of non-compliance with the school calendar, both in general education and in higher education. and health.

More strike announcements are expected in the coming days, as is the case with public school teachers who have vowed to stop classes and accuse the government of being inactive in response to demands made in 2019.

talking and political animal

There is Ludwig Wittgenstein: language is not only used to describe reality, we also use it to ask for favors, to give thanks, to curse, to greet, to pray…

And it is necessary to take into account the context, the situation, the use. “It’s raining” can state the fact that it’s really raining. But suppose that the mother in the morning, when the son is getting ready for school, says to him: “It is raining”, he at the same time knows that he must take an umbrella. If in a peasant family, after a long drought, as now, the wife opens the window and says to her husband: “It is raining,” then this speaks of contentment. But if you were expecting a pleasant walk and you say, “It’s raining,” you’re in for a disappointment.
Language performs three main functions: expressive, appellative and representative. These functions are related to the relationship established between sender, receiver and objects: there is someone (the sender) who addresses someone (the receiver) to tell him something, making reality real.

Championship in Qatar and final in Moscow

To write without mentioning the World Cup, which started this week in Qatar, could be considered pedantic. I don’t want to fall into this trap. So, from what has happened so far, I highlight the courage of the Iranian team, which was silent, did not sing when their national anthem was played. This attitude was extraordinary. This emphatically marked the support of the players for the people of their country, who were on the streets for weeks to challenge the medieval rule of the Shia clerics and fight for freedom and equality in the treatment of all, men and people. women. This is not a mixture of football and politics. There are others, at the top of the state, who do this. Yes, this is a memory that human rights should be above all. Whenever politics is built on this basis at the domestic and international levels, the world will be completely different, more harmonious and benevolent. And less cynically, in the political sphere.

The show, set in Qatar, reminds us of three important facts. First, the diversity of the peoples of the globe. The culture of each of them must be respected and appreciated. We always have the opportunity to learn something from others. And racism has no place either in sports or in everyday life. Secondly, there are rivers of money flowing around football. I’m not talking about the billions spent by the host country. I will only mention that the great football teams are in the northern hemisphere: of the 32 participants in the tournament, about 22 come from the richest countries. This game is played in almost every corner of the world, big stars are known everywhere, but without resources there are no victories, without currency clubs and tackles nothing more than a fraudulent stock. Thirdly, football revives primal nationalisms, anything as long as you win, including the blessing of the hand of God, in the famous version of Maradona. Not the best will win, but my selection. This is not a sport, this is blinding anything, with a lit candle and faith in God.
