Haiti: trade union action

leave a comment »

Amidst news that the death toll in Haiti may be as high as 200,000 people (over 70,000 people have already been buried), and that cruise ships have continued to find private places to dock just 60 miles from the earthquake zone, TUC Aid has launched its own appeal for funds for emergency relief. You can find further information about the TUC Aid appeal and a chance to donate online – via justgiving.com, so you can be sure that funds will find their way to where they are intended – here. Over 3m Haitian people are in desperate need of food, clothes, shelter and essential medicines and tens of thousands are facing their sixth night out in the open.
