UAW Labor for Palestine urges labor bodies to fully embrace the Urgent Call from Palestinian Trade Unions to End all Complicity and Stop Arming Israel (@workersinpalestine). We believe acting in real union solidarity with the struggle for Palestinian liberation and return requires centering Palestinian trade union demands. We also uplift the demands of the @palestinianyouthmovement to move beyond ceasefire.
As our @uaw.union leadership honors and respects, the members are the highest authority in our union. We urge other rank and file members: do not underestimate your power to change the course of history. Do not underestimate your power to create real justice and peace for Palestine in our lifetime. We as rank and file workers must act. This is our moment — rise to it.
Permanent ceasefire now. End the occupation now. From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free!
