The World Federation of Trade Unions, representing 92 million workers in the 5 continents, condemns the increasing phenomenon of imprisonments, based on the expression of people’s opinion in Thailand.
The incidents of attacks against freedom of speech is an overt violation of the rights of the people of Thailand. Those practices mainly undermine the action of the working class and aim to the subjugation and manipulation of the popular strata, minimizing the possibility of the class oriented struggles.
The international class oriented trade union movement denounces these phenomena which are integral parts of the generalized anti-labour policy. The WFTU expresses its solidarity to the working class and the people of Thailand and demands the immediate release of all the political prisoners in the country without terms and exceptions. The silencing of the people is unacceptable and is always doomed to fail under the impact of militant struggles for the covering of the peoples’ contemporary needs.
