The World Federation of Trade Unions firmly condemns the murder of 16 Palestinian people and the injuring of hundreds of others by the army of Israel yesterday in Gaza, during the great popular protests of the Palestinian people on the occasion of their Land Day.
The Israeli occupation forces did not hesitate to open fire and murder our Palestinian brothers who are resisting against the cruel occupation of the Palestinian land by the state of Israel.
The WFTU, representing more than 92 million workers in 126 countries all over the world, backs up the heroic struggle and protests of our brothers and sisters from Palestine.
As the world militant trade union movement, we will continue our support and solidarity for the end of the bloodshed and the occupation against the people of Palestine and for the recognition of the free State of Palestine within the 1967 borders and East Jerusalem as its capital.
Long live the heroic struggle of the people of Palestine!
