LabourStart: Egypt

To all LabourStart correspondents -

 
The events in Egypt have rightly captured the attention of the whole world – and LabourStart has played an outstanding role by being one of the ways the newly-independent workers’ movement has gotten its message out to the world.
 
This week we received translations of messages that were dictated by phone when the regime had tried to crack down on Internet access.
 
We posted those messages in real time to our site, via our newswires and social networks.
 
Unions around the world have strongly supported the Egyptian people and we have published those statements — when we know about them.   
 
See, for example, this recent statement by the International Trade Union Confederation.
 
What has your union done or said?  Have you issued a statement?  Are you protesting at Egyptian embassies?  Are you providing aid to the protestors?
 
If so, please make sure this news appears on LabourStart and make certain to include ‘Egypt’ in the country field when you do so.
 
It’s very important we show our solidarity from all over the world, in all languages, at this time.
 
You can see what we’ve done so far here -
 
 
Thanks for all your help.
 
Eric
