Coming up this Saturday:
Trade unions in the United Kingdom will on the 4th of November team up with Action for Southern Africa (ACTSA) and Amicus to host a major conference in central London on solidarity with Zimbabwe's trade unions that continue to be a target for the government, especially following their September protest that was thwarted by the police.Conference details here. (Thanks: MA.)
The conference is meant to discuss ways through which labour unions around the world can help their colleagues in Zimbabwe. [ACTSA director, Euan] Wilmhurst said the conference, at which Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) president, Lovemore Matombo, will speak, is meant to support labour unions whose leaders were badly beaten up by the police on September 13 while protesting against low wages, lack of access to HIV/Aids drugs and related issues.
