Press release From PGFTU concerning the tragic
incidents in Gaza and destroying PGFTU Offices and Labor Voice
The Palestine General Federation of Trade Unions
condemns the eruption of new range violence in Gaza which caused
a big loss of dead and injured persons, meanwhile the attack
on the PGFTU Office and destroying of labor's voice station.
For these reasons PGFTU has organized on Sunday
4/2/2007 a labor demonstration in Ramalah to express the workers
and union movement rejection to the incidents and the attempts
to silence the voice of workers.
It is decided that workers will raise slogans
condemning the killing incidents and the destroying the PGFTU
offices in Gaza , the need to face the impacts of poverty and
unemployment instead of killing.
In this prospect, Shaher Sae'd the General Secretary
of the PGFTU declared that this demonstration comes to protest
the tragic incidents occurring in Gaza which may lead to civil
war, to destroy the Palestinian National project and make it
very difficult to achieve prosperous future for the Palestinian
people and workers.
Shaher also asked the national institution to
denounce these incidents, to express their solidarity to the
workers issues and the need for a national unity government.
