From The Socialist newspaper, 26 March 2008

Solidarity with Kashmir workers

THE TRADE Union Rights Campaign - Kashmir [TURC-K] is in the forefront of helping to organise solidarity for thousands of earthquake-affected public sector workers in Pakistani Occupied Kashmir.

On 18 March workers began an indefinite strike in Rawalakot. The main protest demonstration was led by the public works department workers' banner, demanding the overdue salaries of workers who have not been paid for the last 19 months.

The Employees Action Committee, through the TURC-K, has made an appeal to trade unionists and young people for messages of solidarity to the striking workers and protests to the authorities concerned. TURC-K is organising solidarity action in Kashmir.

Jamal Khan,
TURC- K, Kotli, Kashmir

Please include in letters of protest the necessity to implement the following demands of the Employees Action Committee:

Please send all solidarity messages to: Employees Action Committee, c/o TURC-K: turc_kashmir@yahoo.co.uk
