International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) Secretary General’s support for Iran protests

International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) Secretary General’s support for Iran protests

On December 21st the Secretary-General of the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), Mrs. Sharan Burrow, condemned the brutal crackdown on public protests by Iranian regime officials that caused the loss of hundreds lives and injured thousands, and she told the upraised people in Iran that your courage is great; we stand behind you, and I salute your courage.

The International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), established since November 1, 2006, currently comprises 200 million members of workers from various fields of 332 trade unions; in 163 countries. Headquartered in Geneva, it has close links with the United Nations, International Labor Organization ILO and other specialized UN agencies.

The International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC)also holds a consultative role at the United Nations.

Message of support from Ms. Sharan Burrow, Secretary-General of the ITU of Iran Protests:

Today I present a message of solidarity with the Iranian people. When a government attacks its own people, when hundreds are killed and thousands injured because a government is in denial of the fundamental rights and freedoms that people want.

If there is no freedom of association, if there is no freedom of assembly, if people don’t have the right to represent each other when they’re exploited in the case of workers or to argue for expanding democratic space, then this is not a free country. And when the government shuts down the Internet and excludes people from communication with the outside world, well thats a symbol for oppression for authoritarianism, for a world where people are losing hope in the future.

We say to you, your courage is extraordinary; Your fight is in line with fights all around the world, so the ITCU family, 200 million members stand with you, we stand behind you. I salute your courage solidarity.
