Congress 2014: daily digest, 14 August

Quotes from congress today:

Nermin Sharif, Ports and Seafarers Union of Libya

“The situation at the moment is pure violation. I am fearful for the workers there. I really want us to work on this campaign, to make sure the football World Cup doesn't go ahead in Qatar because it is a country with no human rights”

Rosa Pavanelli, Public Service International

“From north to south, public service workers’ rights are under attack. Austerity policies and global competition are being used by the rich, who are getting richer and richer while the rest of the world is getting poorer and poorer. The only obstacle to them is workers’ power through their unions. This is why the attacks on them are so violent."

Omar Suarez, SOMU

“Nothing we’ve achieved would have been possible without the enormous solidarity we have witnessed. Solidarity is the most important tool that workers have”
