Stop the repression against the trade unions in Turkey
In the last
few weeks we have seen an unprecedented clampdown on Turkish trade unionists.
Today at least 73 members of the public sector union KESK are in prison, some
of them without charges. The authorities also put pressure on members of the journalists' union TGS to make them leave the union.
The bogus accusations and the general clampdown on journalists, civil rights defenders and students pushed European trade union federations to organise a picket of solidarity on Friday 6th July at noon outside of the Turkish delegation to the European Union ( Rue des Arts 36-38) in Brussels.
The EFJ, the European Federation of Public Service Union (EPSU) together with the European Trade Union Confederation and the International Trade Union Confederation call to all trade unionists and citizens to join us in the moment of protest.
A street point of press will be organise to inform about the situation of Turkish Trade unionists.
