The deadly floods in Pakistan are another proof that the people of the world are unprotected against the natural phenomena, despite the technological breakthrough. Those condemned in poverty, illnesses, imperialist wars and massive immigration rates by the imperialist aggressiveness and barbarity are also condemned in insecurity, uncertainty and misery because of the lack of flood protection measures (as well as earthquake and fire protection measures).
The World Federation of Trade Unions reafirms its sympathy with the people of Pakistan for the national calamity caused by the worst flooding in nearly a century. The devastation caused by the floods has killed thousands of people and over 20 million people have lost their every belongings.
We are following all developments in the area and we express our moral support to all unions and members that are going to rebuilt their country and the living conditions of the people of Pakistan.
Once again we express our full solidarity with the working class of Pakistan and we hope that they can find the strength to overcome this tragedy.
We call upon all the trade union organisations of the world to support the people and the working class of Pakistan with any practical and material way possible.
