Will you allow "Tuzla kvarc" workers to perish unnoticed?

 Workers of the company " Tuzla kvarc " have been on a hunger strike since April 11th.  As of this morning, April 25th, they have closed themselves off into one of the company offices and do not intend to leave until they are allowed to go back to work and earn their livelihoods.  They are refusing medical treatment as they do not have health insurance nor means to pay for it. They claim their company has lost governmental concessions to continue with their operations and the problems commenced after they reported a deputy department minister for bribery and corruption-(who has since been arrested and against whom there are now court proceedings). Workers of "Tuzla kvarc" are urging the judiciary to do its job and to enable them to do theirs.  The astonishing and shameful fact remains that no officials from City of Tuzla nor representatives of Tuzla Kanton's legislative or executive powers have come to visit the workers since their hunger strike commenced, leaving them to wonder even whose citizens they are .  Will we allow for them to perish unnoticed?  

A general public survey on corruption from Transparency International shows that citizens perceive Bosnia's political structures to be deeply affected by corruption. Two-third of citizens believe that the government's efforts to combat corruption are ineffective.  Only hope is for us to stand united and fight corruption and greed wherever we may face it-- we all cry, love and laugh the same. Hunger doesn't ask for you name, religion, or ancestry!  Please consider signing the below petition to let "Tuzla kvarc" workers know we stand with them and to appeal to the local authorities to take notice of their citizens.

 

Radnici "Tuzla kvarca" su vec 14 dana u strajku gladju, a jucer su iskopali i svoja grobna mjesta u krugu tvornice u kojoj rade!! Donijeli su odluku da se od danas zakljucaju u prostorije firme. Portal Tuzlanski.ba prenosi da im je zdravstveno stanje narušeno, a Hitna pomoć je intervenisala u nekoliko navrata. Štrajkači uprkos tome odbijaju otići u UKC Tuzla, jer novca za zdravstvene usluge nemaju. "Žalosna je ali istovremeno i sramotna činjenica, da ih za sve ove dane koliko su u štrajku glađu radnici "Tuzla-Kvarca" nije posjetio niko ni od čelnika Grada Tuzla, niti od predstavnika zakonodavne i izvršne vlasti TK-a, pa se radnici s pravom pitaju, čiji su oni u stvari građani?" - stoji u saopstenju "Sindikata Solidarnosti", prenosi Tuzlanski.ba. Radnici i uprava tvrde da su izgubili koncesije za rad i da su njihovi problemi sa Vladom TK nastali jer su prijavili bivšeg pomoćnika resornog ministra  za mito i korupciju koji je uhapšen i protiv kojeg se vodi sudski postupak. Radnici su pozvali pravosuđe da radi svoj posao, a da se njima omogući da rade svoj...Gdje je kraj?  Do kada ce vlasti ignorisati svoje gradjane?  Da li cemo dozvoliti da izgube zivote neprimjeceni?
