Dear Colleagues,

Latin America Conference 2015

I am writing to bring your attention to the Latin America Conference 2015 which will take place on 28th November at     TUC Congress House, London

The Conference is organised by the Cuba Solidarity Campaign and Venezuela Solidarity Campaign, supported by the TUC and SERTUC, and brings together political leaders, trade unionists, NGOs, academics & progressive movements to explore recent developments across the region, along with films, music and exhibitions showcasing Latin American culture.

Speakers this year include newly-elected Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn MP, representatives of Latin American Embassies and a special international trade union guest speaker Noe Ramirez, from the Guatemalan banana workers union SITRABI.

Discussions will include a session on the Scottish trade unionists who worked at Rolls-Royce in East Kilbride in 1974, and who in an act of solidarity refused to work on the engines of planes used by General Pinochet to attack the progressive Allende government.

Tickets are available from http://www.latinamerica2015.org.uk/tickets.

RMT is affiliated to the Cuba Solidarity Campaign and Venezuela Solidarity Campaign, and branches are encouraged to do likewise.

Yours sincerely,
 
Mick Cash     
General Secretary
