The Queensland Branch of the Australian Liquor, Hospitality & Miscellaneous Workers Union issued a resolution yesterday calling for an end to the illegal Israeli occupation and joining the Palestinian call for BDS. View the AUSPalestine NEWS page to view the LHMU statement.
This brings to 14 the number of Australian unions and state labour councils who have joined the non-violent Palestinian call for boycott, divestment and sanctions of Israel until it adheres to international law and UN resolutions. AUSPalestine congratulates all those unions and unionists who are standing in solidarity with our Palestinian colleagues – United We Are Strong!
A reminder as well to unionists in Victoria of the forum this coming Saturday 7 August in Melbourne, “Opposing Israeli Apartheid: Australian Unions and the International Boycott campaign”. See the AUSPalestine EVENTS page for details.
