Appeal from Sri Lankan trade unionist

LabourStart correspondent Jagath Bandara is from Sri Lanka. He is currently living in Australia, where he works for the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union (AMWU), but he retains close links with Sri Lanka. He was visiting the country on 25 December, the day before the tsunami hit. Today we are broadcasting a special appeal by him to LabourStart readers and to listeners of Radio LabourStart. You can hear the appeal by downloading this MP3 file, or by tuning in to Radio LabourStart -- we are including it in all our playlists throughout the week. For more information on how trade unions around the world are responding to the catastrophe in the Indian Ocean region, please visit our special page on the subject.
