At the last OWLS meeting on November 28, the featured topic was on “Defend free speech: Stop Harassment of Pro-Palestine Voices.” There was also a report on union resolutions and solidarity actions that workers are taking up on behalf of embattled Palestinians. In response, OWLS adopted the following [statement] position:
Organized Workers for Labor Solidarity stands with our working-class sisters and brothers in Gaza and calls for:
- Stop the genocidal bombing and blockade of Gaza now.
- End U.S. militarily aid to Israel; fund humanitarian aid to Palestinians.
- No harassment of pro-Palestinian voices on the job, in schools, or by the FBI.
