The Oilfields Workers’ Trade Union joins with the progressive people across the world and the World Federations of Trade Unions (WFTU) in saluting those brave Comrades who died battling fascism so many years ago to make it a better world for us all.
As WFTU comes together to commemorate the defeat of the Nazi-fascist threat, we also recognize the birth of the great and militant federation who we continue to struggle with for all these years. Indeed, 1945 gave birth to great struggle, great victory and a milestone for the working class in its struggle for humanity.
We therefore join this critical class union movement as we bring light to the significance of this time and we remember the blood that was shed as history paved the way for a better future. Truth should never be erased as we delve into the future, for the knowledge of our history is what ensures that we do not repeat past mistakes.
We will continue the fight alongside our global comrades against exploitation and against injustice as we struggle on forward ever and backwards never as one working class movement.
