Weekly update: New campaign launched in support of democracy in Myanmar

As people come back to work after their summer holiday (in the northern hemisphere), we are beginning to see more activity, including new campaigns being launched this week.

Iran: As announced previously, we participated in an online event with various pro-democracy campaigners from Iran. The text of my remarks are here.

Myanmar: We launched a major new campaign with the support of global unions today. We had a Zoom call earlier this week with BWI staffers who responded to our suggestion of a campaign.

Puerto Rico: We are launching a campaign this week in support of electricity workers. We had a Zoom call with leaders of the union and supporters in the mainland US about this.

Closed campaigns: We have now closed down our Thailand Yachiyoda campaign and the long-running Fedex/TNT campaign after more than three months, with the approval of the sponsoring unions.

Essential for Recovery: We did fairly extensive publicity online for this 3-day event whose sponsors included the ITUC, UNI Global Union, IDWF, the Solidarity Center, etc.

Today in Labour History: There was a problem with the software to delete records; this has now been fixed.
