FISE protested against imperialist intervention in Yemen

PRESS RELEASE

Athens 23 January 2018

The World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU), World Federation of Teachers Unions (FISE)  protested yesterday in front of the Saudi Arabian Embassy in Athens to denounce the ongoing imperialist intervention in Yemen.

The delegation submitted a resolution stating:

“The war that has broken out as a result of the competition for the crucial geostrategic region, with the full support of the US, has begun since March 2017 and continues up to date with devastating consequences for the people and especially for Yemeni children. According to UN figures, it has cost the lives of more than 8,750 people, while the number of the injured reaches the 50,600. Thousands of schools and health centers have been damaged or completely destroyed. Two million children suffer from acute malnutrition and more than 11 million children are in desperate need for humanitarian aid.

The continuing assassinations and the partial – but equally devastating air, land and maritime embargo imposed on the people of Yemen by Saudi Arabia and its allies, make it even harder to send any humanitarian aid.

WE DEMAND the termination of the murderous attacks. Removal of the blockades. Peace in both Yemen and surrounding areas.” Continue reading

Solidarity with Ahed Tamimi and all the Palestinian political prisoners

Dear colleagues, WFTU members and friends,
The Working Youth Committee of the WFTU strongly condemns the state of Israel for arresting and imprisoning of Ahed Tamimi, a 16-year-old Palestinian girl, because she resists against the Israeli occupation of her homeland. The Working Youth Committee will never accept the silencing of the struggling young people.
We demand the immediate release of Ahed Tamimi and all the Palestinian political prisoners without terms or conditions.
The WYC calls on the young workers all over the world to take pictures on groups with the attached banner in their own cities.
