The World Federation of Trade Unions organized several acts of solidarity with the militant cormrades of the trade union SITRAJAP in Costa Rica, in their fair struggle against the privatization of the port docks in Limon.
The WFTU has delivered several letters to Embassies and Consulates of Costa Rica in several European countries.
In Athens, a large delegation of trade unionists led by comrade Valentin Pacho, Deputy Secretary General of the WFTU and comrade George Pontikos, responsible for international relations of PAME Greece, handed over a statement protesting for the situation in Costa Rica to the offices of the European Union in Greece. The delegation met with the European Commission representative in Athens and discussed about the difficulties of trade unionists in Latin America. The letter will be sent this week to the European Commission in Brussels to transmit the complaint to the government of Costa Rica.
In Portugal, comrade Artur Sequeira from the TUI Public Services headed the WFTU delegation that presented a statement at the Consulate of Costa Rica in Lisbon.
From the WFTU we express our class-oriented solidarity to our comrades in Costa Rica and we demanded from the government to give an immediate solution for the benefit of workers.
