Brace yourselves – new campaigns on the way, in droves

This has now been updated, here.

I’ve responded to emails requesting urgent action campaigns this morning from, or on behalf, of:

  • Now live! Turkish aviation workers – facing a gov’t ban on the right to strike and the sacking of hundreds of workers
  • SNAPAP members in Algeria – on hunger strike
  • Korea: dramatic campaign at Ssangyoung motor – including some suicides
  • Kenya: lockout of flower workers
  • Iraq: Oil workers
  • Indonesia: This is not a request for a campaign, but to promote one already on
  • Thailand: Wal-mart – stop human rights abuses in your factories.  Also already live on – we’ll just give it a boost, as the IUF did 5 days ago.

I plan to begin work today on a draft agreement between us and any campaign partners laying out what we pledge to do and what they pledge to do.  We need this as more and more campaign requests come through.
