March 8, Women and Hot Air

March 8, Women and Hot Air


In Luxembourg the Local Staff Committee has chosen "Women and Power" as its theme for March 8, 2010 .

Of course, no one seems to know which women and power over what decisions is intended by this slogan.

In contrast, European Parliament has chosen "Violence Against Women; We can Stop It" as its motto.

Even this is a bit optimistic, but at least it has a discernable meaning and thus might do some good.

A quick look at our Staff Regulations and the Framework Agreement shows that those who do the work have no power at all.

There is no industrial democracy, no co-decision in the EU Civil service, yet. (The reason to hope for the eventual abolition of management absolutism is that two successful Member States, Austria and Germany, have been practicing industrial democracy with good results for the last thirty years.)

When it comes to power, or lack thereof, gender is a very secondary issue. Until industrial democracy is introduced almost all women will remain powerless, together with the vast majority of men. What matters is whether you belong to the 2% who own half of the wealth on earth or to the other 98% who hold the remaining half of this planet.

By definition, power is never given, it is taken.

Well, we do have the powers of EU citizens, so we should use them before we loose them.

Let us see how much we can do to save Shirin Alamholi's life with this petition.


That is a good way to celebrate International Woman's Day down here on the ground while clouds of hot air drift by in the sky.

Please take the time and sign the petition to save Shirin Alam Holi's life


S olidarity with those who work for their money
I ndependence from those who don't
D emocracy in all decisions taken by groups of sane, adult humans


SID - Solidarity, Independence, Democracy is an independent Trade Union of all EU Institutions employees (Je souhaite adhérer au SID…)
