The Progressive Workers Union is holding our Jewish and Muslim members, friends, and family around the world in our hearts and our prayers. We offer our sincere and deepest condolences as you begin to process the recent tragedies, mourn, and brace for the resulting rise in anti-Semitism and Islamophobia. We stand with those who remain brave in the face of terror and violence as they resist war in Israel and Palestine. As a union that represents workers fighting for a just climate and environment, the Progressive Workers Union knows that nations cannot bomb their way to justice, which is why we are calling for an immediate ceasefire in this conflict. As a US-based union, we oppose the use of American tax-dollars to support a war that will result in further loss of life, especially civilians and children. Finally, we lift up the rights and sovereignty of the Palestinian people, as we do for Indigenous people around the world. Peace is a Progressive value we’re proud to support.
