The World Federation of Trade Unions, on the behalf of its 92 million members in 126 countries all over the world, strongly denounces the new escalation of Israeli aggressiveness against the people of Palestine.
Over the last days, the Israeli government has restricted access to the Al-Aqsa Mosque in the Old City of Jerusalem on the pretext of security measures and this decision was followed by violent repression and new victims from the Palestinian people by the Israeli army.
These restrictions and bans constitute a flagrant violation of the Palestinian people’s fundamental rights, in order to change the status of historical-religious sites, while at the same time the Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories are increasing.
The world class oriented trade union movement extends its internationalist solidarity with the people of Palestine and demands the immediate stop of this new aggression, expansion of settlements, illegal detention and murders of the struggling Palestinian workers.
STOP TO THE ISRAELI AGGRESSION AND OCCUPATION! RECOGNITION OF THE INDEPENTENT PALESTINIAN STATE WITHIN 1967 BORDERS WITH EAST JERUSALEM AS ITS CAPITAL!
