Appeal from the Trade Union Rights Campaign

MANY AID agencies will be collecting funds over the next weeks. Unfortunately this will be distributed by the same corrupt government whose policies increased the death toll.

The TURCP is appealing for trade unionists to make donations which will go directly to help workers and fellow trade unionists on the ground. The money will also be used to build and rebuild trade unions in affected areas as well as to organise campaigns to ensure that the rebuilding efforts are carried out in the interests of the working class and poor peasants and to ensure that big business does not profit out of peoples' suffering.

All donations will be acknowledged and regular reports will be sent out explaining how donations are being used. Our campaign has set up a bank account in London, Britain for the collection of funds outside Asia.

Please make all cheques payable to 'TURCP' and send them to Trade Union Rights Campaign Pakistan, PO Box 52135, London E9 5WR, Britain. Or alternatively send the money by Bank Transfer to: TURCP, account number: 0574699, sort code: 30-95-03, Lloyds TSB, 797-799 High Road Leytonstone.

If you are sending a bank transfer please send an email to turcpakistan@yahoo.com giving details of the transfer or alternatively by post to the above address.

Azad Qadri, Organising Secretary, Trade Union Rights Campaign - Pakistan and Khalid Bhatti, National Organiser Trade Union Rights

Campaign - Pakistan

The following unions in Pakistan have backed the campaign: Railway Workers Union workshops, PTCL joint workers action committee, PTCL Lions union, Postal Employees union, Muthida Labour Federation, Informal sector workers organisation, Teachers union, commercial workers union Lahore, RMS Employees union, Pakistan state life staff union, Agriculture workers union.


The Trade Union Rights Campaign - Pakistan was set up in April 2005 to help coordinate solidarity and support for workers' struggles against downsizing, privatisation, and the neo-liberal agenda of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund which is followed slavishly by the Musharraf government in Pakistan.

We are trade union leaders and activists who have organised ourselves on a radical fighting platform to oppose the massive attacks against Pakistani workers by the government and the big companies which dominate the economy.
