A statement by the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) follows. The message is radical and is a break from all that the ETUC has said and done in the recent past. We will see what is its real meaning.
At stake is :
The ETUC's comments on the socially negative features of the draft European Constitution help organisations in Ireland like DAPSE.Regards,

No country in the developed world should be better able understand the life and death livelihood struggle that rages for a million tenant farmers in the south of Pakistan more effortlessly than Ireland. However, Ireland in fact appears to be complicit in directly undermining their struggle, through its support of the corporate agenda being aggressively pushed by the European Commission in ongoing negotiations on the liberalisation of trade in services. At this weekend’s Irish Social Forum (Oct 17-19), the possibility of responding to our governments’ complicity with a peoples’ solidarity will be explored by a speaker representing the struggles of these communities. read full story / add a comment
