On August 15th a local alliance consisting of the Free Workers’ Union (FAU) Hamburg, Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) Hamburg as well as the Libertäre H-Burg and individual comrades held a rally in front of a Lidl store in Harburg, a district in the south of Hamburg to kick off the Global Month of Solidarity.
All 400 leaflets were distributed. One with contact details of the GWTUC was handed over to the Lidl store management. The manager confirmed to forward the information to the Lidl headquarter. We look forward to Lidl Germany getting in touch with GWTUC in Dhaka and blacklisting factories belonging to the Dragon Group!
Speeches were held, the audio messages of the GWTUC as well as the IWW Ireland were played. The public was generally welcoming our input.
Another rally is being planned for August 29th in front of a New Yorker store in Altona (another district of Hamburg).
