Touch one, touch all: Ark Tribe supporters protest in London
Standing outside Australia House in London, union safety campaigners handed out flyers to passers by, some of whom were attending a concert by the Sydney Philharmonia Choir who were in town at the time. Imagine their surprise when they found out that not everything coming out of Australia is music to the ears. The protesters also handed a letter in support of Ark to the Australian High Commission.
Trade unions represented at the protest included the TSSA, UCU, NUJ, UNITE, UCATT. Members from other organisations such as the HAZARDS Safety Campaign, Labour Lawyers from International Centre for Trade Union Rights (ICTUR) and the Blacklist Support Group were also on hand to support spread the message about the ABCC and their charges against the rank and file worker, Ark Tribe.
