Unions call for solidarity with workers in Iran
Updated: Jan 24
I’m writing to inform you of the establishment of the Committee for Solidarity with the Iranian Workers’ Movement, a new campaign founded by a range of Iranian and Kurdish socialist and feminist activists, with support from ourselves and others in the British labour movement.
We are planning a day of action on 8 February in solidarity with the workers and revolutionary uprising in Iran and hope you will consider joining us in this effort across the UK and internationally.
Our global movement at its best has always been radically internationalist, organising solidarity and practical support for workers’ and democratic struggles around the world. The workers, women, and youth of Iran, in their struggle against theocratic oppression, and for freedom and equality, need our solidarity now.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to inform us of your for any plans plans for 8 February.
A model motion for union bodies is also included for use by union bodies.
Yours in solidarity,
John McDonnell MP
