Palestine Solidarity Campaign hosts special trade union conference
The conference, at the TUC’s headquarters in London on July 4th, will provide the space to explore new avenues and provide tools for activists to further the organisation’s work for Palestine.
Speakers include Palestine MP Dr Mustafa Barghouti, academic Professor Karma Nabusi and ASLEF general secretary Mick Whelan.
Martial Kurtz from PSC said: “With sessions on the current situation in Palestine, on how to take action on sanctions and divestment, on how to challenge the pro-Israel agenda and on the existing solidarity work trade unions in the UK are already engaged in, this conference will provide the space and opportunity for everybody who wishes to make further progress for Palestine in their unions and beyond.
“Since the summer of 2014 there has been a seismic shift in public opinion on Palestine. And with that came a transformation in the influence we can have as a movement. Our goal is clear. We are fighting for freedom, justice and equality for the Palestinians. The UK trade union movement is a key component of that struggle for Palestinian freedom, and has played a crucial part in the last few years in growing the solidarity movement.”
