Your help is needed to defend the rights of workers in Paraguay. 51 workers from the Line 49 bus company in AsunciÃ³n, Paraguay, have been fired for forming a trade union. The workers, who had endured 10 years of informal work, irregular pay and long hours, created the union in June and were dismissed the very next day.
Thirty-seven of them have since been protesting outside the company headquarters by self-crucifying.
The ITUC has asked for letters of protest to be sent to the Paraguayan Embassy in the UK, and have provided a model letter Click here.Â Please send letters to:
His Excellency Mr Miguel Angel Solano Lopez Casco
Embassy of the Republic of Paraguay
344 Kensington High Street
