Zie hierna ter herinnering, laat maar nog niet te laat!
Er gaan al enkele ABVAKABO-FNVers maar meer is zeker welkom!!

Merk op de deelname van COSATU aan deze conferentie over het verzet van Palestijnse
arbeiders tegen o.a. de bezetting.
De gelijkenis tussen Israel en apartheids-Zuid-Afrika zal vast worden verduidelijkt.
Doet De Klerk trouwens ook bij herhaling, zie o.a. dit recente artikel:
Citaat over apartheid: "...Wij wilden precies hetzelfde als wat de hele wereld nu
steunt in Israël en Palestina: het trekken van grenzen en het verdelen van land op
basis van etniciteit.... "

Dear friends in Europe

We would like to ask you to please circulate the information about the Palestine
Solidarity Campaign Trade Union and Palestine Conference on March 11th to your
members and other affiliates. This conference is a major step for trade unionists
and solidarity activists to support Palestinian workers in their daily struggles
against the Israeli occupation. With major speakers, such as Shaher Sae'd and Diana
Buttu from Palestine and Willie Madisha from COSATU, this event will provide a great
opportunity to build solidarity with the Palestinian people.

We would be extremely pleased if your organisation could send delegates to what
looks like to become a very important event in the Solidarity world.

The PSC in London will of course assist all those who need to find adequate
accommodation for the weekend of the conference. Please get in touch with me on the
contact details below. We are also looking into the possibility to organise an after
conference event on Sunday the 12th of March, where delegates from European
Solidarity groups, Trade Union representatives and our Palestinian friends will be
able to spend more time discussing practical ways of furthering solidarity between

The details of the conference, entitled "Palestinian Workers Challenging the
Occupation", in word format are below. Please contact us to receive a copy of the
leaflet in PDF format.

Please contact us should you need a registration form or any additional information.

Many thanks and best wishes.
