In contrast to union activists with a perculiar obsession, the TUC is running a humanitarian campaign to help civilians in Gaza who are suffering in the current conflict between Israel and Hamas. Regardless of your views of the conflict, in particular the rights and wrongs of the various sides, it is a fact that Palestinian civilians are suffering. If you wish to donate, please click here.
We may not all be Hamas now, but we are all human.
All proceeds will be forwarded through the Palestine General Federation of Trade Unions (PGFTU) and the International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF) to support emergency humanitarian relief operations carried out by them in Gaza. All trade union relief operations are co-ordinated through Red Crescent in Jordan, Egypt and Gaza and focused on the identified needs of the people affected by the events. The first ITF-PGFTU humanitarian flight is due to leave for Gaza on 08 Jan 2009. The TUC supports an immediate ceasefire by both sides, and the pursuit of a political solution to the problems of the Middle East based on two states.
