Solidarity and Human Rights
Trade union rights are human rights - and trade unionists need to be among the foremost defenders of human rights.
Perhaps the first human right is the right to life - we certainly hear enough from politicians about how the state protects our safety.
That's why we should show solidarity with the United Friends and Families Campaign, which brings together those seeking justice for their loved ones who have died in police custody or at the hands of the police.
Those in London tomorrow can join the procession at 12.30pm from Trafalgar Square to Downing Street (http://uffc-campaigncentral.org/m/event?id=6614919:Event:2933).
Solidarity to all those who will be there.
