T r a d e Unions Support for Anti-Apartheid
Galway company of Trades Unions recently hosted a public meeting with the objective of setting up a branch of the Anti-Apartheid Move ment, in Galway. Addressing this meeting, Kadir Asmal, Chairman of the National AntiApartheid Movement, outlined three main reasons why such branches s h o u l d be set u p . Everyone, he said, must be aware of conditions prevailing in South Africa and be willing to combat the racial form of apartheid there which has its roots in Colonialism. The first reason he outlined was the specific nature of Apartheid in South Africa which was based on violence. There, 5 million whites have a total monopoly of power over 24 million blacks and 1 million Asians - a system born out of violence, maintained by violence and supported by the collabor ation of multi-nationals. Mr. Asmal criticised the Irish Government for failing to take action and pointed out that branches of the Anti-Apartheid Movement were necessary in Galway and elsewhere in order to put pressure on the Government to get off the fence in particular as there is a clear mandate for decisive action. Due to the success of this meeting Galway Council of Trades Unions has decided to hold an inaugural meeting of the Galway Branch of the Anti-Apartheid Move ment on Tuesday, 12th April in the I T G W U Hall, Prospect Hill, at 8.00 p.m.
