Labour Start: 69 women trade union leaders to stand trial next week - call for messages of protest
Friday 28 September 2012, 12am
In another 6 days, the trial begins in Turkey of 69 trade union leaders -- all of them women, from the public sector union -- on trumped-up charges of "terrorism".
The international trade union movement is demanding their release, and sending a delegation to observe the trial.
They have asked us to flood the Turkish government with thousands of email messages of support for the accused.
Please take a moment and send off your message - click here.
When you've done that, please forward this message to as many of your friends, family and fellow union members as you can.
We only have 6 days to build this into a giant campaign -- one that's large enough to get the attention of the Turkish government, and to persuade them to stop the persecution of trade unionists in their country.
Let's all take a few minutes to do what we can to promote this. Our 69 sisters in Turkey are counting on us.
