Brazil: Our first campaign launched as outreach to unions continues

Euan Gibb, LabourStart’s coordinator (pictured on the left) just sent this in:

LabourStart Brasil continues with its slow and steady growth. An important part of the national growth strategy has been presence at events. LabourStart was invited to present on the first day of a three-day national conference for trade union communicators in the city of São Paulo. The event was organized by the national union central CSP-Conlutas. A brief history of some of LabourStart´s successes over the years were presented and an invite to get involved in our campaigns, as correspondents and as translators was extended. Less than one week after participation in this conference, LabourStart Brasil received its first request for a Brazilian campaign!

The president of the country’s largest public university, the University of São Paulo has openly declared that he wants a union-free campus. As part of his project to realize to transform the school into a neoliberal university, the president is currently attempting to evict the union that represents the staff at the university. The administration invited military police armed with automatic rifles onto the campus in order to close the union offices with a large fence. Let’s show the Brazilian trade unionists how much support they have from around the world. Please be sure to sign the campaign yourself, translate this campaign into your local language, and help to share the campaign as widely as possible!
