SOLIDARITY MESSAGE WITH THE PEOPLE OF SWAZILAND
The WFTU expresses its full support and solidarity on behalf of its 63.000.000 members and 170 trade union affiliates all over the world.
It is a fair struggle. We unite our voice with your voices against the sham elections.
The struggle for democracy in Swaziland is a basic duty for the class-oriented trade union movement and the people of Swaziland as whole.
Against the absolute monarchy and slavery, the trade unionists and the politicians, the workers as well as the unemployed should be united and pursue their demands for freedom and democracy through struggles.
The WFTU sends a strong message of solidarity and calls upon all its affiliates to organize actions of solidarity and support the people of Swaziland for the democratization of their country and the end of slavery.
Long live workers international solidarity.
THE WFTU SECRETARIAT
