The World Federation of Trade Unions, gathering in its ranks more than 92 million workers in 126 countries all over the world, expresses its support and solidarity to the trade unionists of Nakliyat-İş Union and other workers that participated in rallies and demonstrations in Turkey on the 1st of May 2018.

Once more the police violently attacked the workers on the day of the celebration of the working class worldwide. We strongly denounce the arrest of our comrade İlhami Danacı from the International Department of Nakliyat-İş, who was detained and wasn’t released until May 7. He was attacked brutally and detained by the riot police while he was marching to Taksim Square.

As the world class oriented trade union movement we will be stably by the side of the WFTU trade unionists and of the working class of Turkey.
