The Trade Union Congress is raising money for humanitarian aid in Gaza. Please note that the Palestine General Federation of Trade Unions and the International Transport Workers’ Federation are not just independent entities–they are considered enemies by Hamas. Whatever your politics, there is no denying the human suffering in Gaza. Please consider donating money here.

All proceeds will be forwarded through the Palestine General Federation of Trade Unions (PGFTU) and the International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF) to support emergency humanitarian relief operations carried out by them in Gaza. All trade union relief operations are co-ordinated through Red Crescent in Jordan, Egypt and Gaza and focused on the identified needs of the people affected by the events. The first ITF-PGFTU humanitarian flight is due to leave for Gaza on 08 Jan 2009. The TUC supports an immediate ceasefire by both sides, and the pursuit of a political solution to the problems of the Middle East based on two states.

Thanks, appropriately enough, to Drink-Soaked Trotskyite Popinjays for War.
