Quim Boix


Quim Boix is a Catalan union activist, with a long history in the struggle against against - imprisonment and torture by - the Franco regime in Spain, and more recently against both the traditional and Euro-Communist Spanish Communist Party and, therefore, also the Comisiones Obreras (CCOO), which is or was closely linked to that party. 
He is also now a leader of the (Communist) World Federation of Trade Unions, and below is his speech to a meeting of WFTU affiliates in South Africa. His stress on 'ideology' leads him below to setting up a Virtuous/Vicious opposition between the 'class conscious' WFTU and the 'class collaborationist' CSI (= International Trade Union Confederation). Yet his final list of demands, it seems to me, do not surpass the radical-reformism of much of the trade union left internationally. By which I here mean a programme which, whilst no doubt welcome, does not actually challenge, ideologically, the institutions and discourse of traditional trade unionism and social-liberalism.
So, whether the TUI of Pensioners, etc, will be more than another 'front organisation' of the Communist-inspired, Communist-hosted and Communist-controlled WFTU has to be sceptically considered.
