Union leaders jailed as 'terrorists'

Trade unionists in Pakistan and Ecuador need our help today.

In Pakistan, six trade union leaders have been jailed on spurious 'terrorism' charges. The International Textile, Garment and Leather Workers Federation has launched a global online campaign to demand their release. Please click here to send off your protest:

In Ecuador, a government crackdown on public sector workers has led to violent attempts to remove protesting workers. There are fears that up to 150,000 workers will lose their jobs. Public Services International has launched an online protest campaign:

Finally, if you've not yet sent off your message in support of locked-out GEA workers in Turkey, please do so today. With over 4,200 messages already sent, the employer is starting to feel the heat.

These campaigns will only be successful if we mobilize many more people, so please spread the word in your workplace and union.

Thanks very much!
