Support Labour Rights Activists in Iran

NEU logo

Information from NEU:

Activists Esmail and Sepideh were first arrested in November 2018 for protesting the unpaid wages and poor working conditions of a sugar cane company in Iran. After speaking out, they were rearrested and have since been badly beaten with metal bars, restrained for long hours and intimidated with sexually abusive language. Join Amnesty International UK and demand the immediate release of Esmail and Sepideh today.

PSC challenges Government

Message from PSC:PSC logo image

Dear Friend,

We’ve won the right to challenge the Government in the Supreme Court over ethical divestment of local pension schemes.

If we win, this will be a huge victory not just for the global BDS movement, but for all those who believe in freedom of expression, democracy and justice.

But it will cost us £60k to get there. That’s why I’m writing to you today to launch our 2019 Fighting Fund appeal – please read on and give whatever you can.

Chip in to the 2019 Fighting Fund now!

The Trump Presidency has overseen a worrying rise in US interventions in Latin America, with the blockade of Cuba being tightened, sanctions threatened on Nicaragua, and Trump pushing for military intervention in Venezuela. But the resurgent right-wing in Latin America is facing resistance, with the Left winning the Mexican election, and trade unionists and popular movements mobilising to defend social progress across the region.
