Stand at the Trade Unions Rally - 1 May 2015

We had a very successful stand at the the May 1st trade unions rally at the Brandenburg Gate. We collected 406 signatures asking the Government of Colombia to guarantee the safety of the Colombian trade union SINALTRAINAL and 384 signatures asking for the release of Behnam Ebrahimzadeh, who was arrested for advocating the establishment of independent trade unions in Iran.

Although there was some frustration at the number of people who came to this trade unions, event but showed little to none solidarity towards trade unionists in other countries in the world, overall we think it was worth it.

A special thanks to everyone who made this stand possible, specially to Amnesty members from other groups who supported us in this action.
