Dear Comrades and Friend,

Unite Community South Yorkshire is a UK based union; we represent all people who cannot find union representation in other ways. Even now in the 21st century, too many people in our country are being pushed to the margins of society. They deserve to be heard; they too deserve the support to organise collectively.

Our branch would like to send a message of solidarity, support and love to the people of Greece:

1.This Branch endorses the message of solidarity and support for the Syriza led Greek government from the General Secretary of Unite and the General Secretary of the TUC.

2. In particular we declare our solidarity with the Greek working class who made their recent general election win possible, and applaud their heroic efforts to throw off the yoke of austerity and debt slavery imposed by banks & bankers, rich parasites and  corrupt politicians.

3. We also note their continuing struggle to repel the anti-democratic fascist tendencies which would intensify the sacrifices being demanded of the working class.

4. We resolve to continue with our opposition to the austerity programme imposed by the UK Coalition government in all its various methods of making the poorest pay for the economic mistakes of the world’s wealthiest, and urge the membership to continue to actively support initiatives which challenge this and promote alternative strategies.

Yours in solidarity.

David Kirkham
