KERALA FLOODS- LET US HELP THE PEOPLE IN DISTRESS.

The unprecedented floods and landslides that hit Kerala in August, 2018 has claimed 484 valuable lives, lakhs of people were shifted to relief camps, thousands were stranded.  Rescue operations were conducted in a war foot basis under the able leadership of Com.Pinarayi Vijayan, Chief Minister. Lakhs of people have lost everything as their houses were swept away in the floods. All the dams were compelled to be opened which aggravated the flood situation. Bridges, roads, electrical and telecom installations, rails etc are damaged and in some cases destroyed completely. So, life in Kerala was virtually paralysed as traffic through road, rail and air was stopped.

It was an unusual situation in the history of Kerala for the last 100 years. The government of Kerala is managing the situation most effectively with the support of the people, army, navy, air force, police, fire force and numerous non-government organisations. The services of the fishermen in rescue operation was crucial which minimized the loss of human lives. The huge financial burden of the devastating disaster cannot be borne with the government fund alone. The Chief Minister of Kerala has appealed to all for generous contributions to the Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund to help the people and to rebuild Kerala. CHQ requests all the units to extend an helping hand to the people of Kerala at this period of distress by contributing, whatever little it may be, to the Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund directly to bank account ; State Bank Of India, City Branch, Thiruvananthapuram- account No.67319948232, IFSC : SBIN0070028 , with intimation to CHQ. Kerala Circle Branch has already taken the initiative to collect the relief fund and has already paid Rs. 25,75,000 .

Palestine – Gaza : STOP to the Israeli air strikes and blockades!

on 17th October morning Israel unleashed new air strikes against targets along Gaza Strip, while the Israeli Minister for Defense ordered the closure of the Erez and Kerem Shalom crossing points as well as the  restriction of the Gaza fishing zone from 6 to 3 miles.

On the behalf of 95 million workers in 130 countries all over the world, the WFTU condemns this new escalation of Israeli aggressiveness against the people of Palestine.

Since last March, more than 200 Palestinians have been murdered by the Israeli army, during their protests for their legitimate rights: the end of the Israeli blockades and the return of the Palestinian Refugees to their homeland.

We extend our internationalist solidarity with the people of Palestine and we demand:

STOP TO THE ISRAELI MILITARY OPERATIONS AND OCCUPATION! RECOGNITION OF THE INDEPENTENT PALESTINIAN STATE WITHIN 1967 BORDERS WITH EAST JERUSALEM AS ITS CAPITAL!

The Secretariat
