London protest in support of Ark Tribe
Australian High Commission,
The Strand, London
4.15pm prompt – 2nd November 2010
Ark Tribe is an Australian construction worker and trade unionist who faces jail for refusing to face an interrogation by the Australian Building and Construction Commission (ABCC), an anti-trade union body set up by the previous Howard government. They want him to name union members who attended a union meeting about terrible health and safety conditions on a site they were all working on. Ark faces up to six months in jail for defending trade union rights.
The London protest will pre-empt Ark’s sentencing hearing as his case will be heard sometime after 11pm London time on the 2nd (in Adelaide the time will be 9.30am 3rd November). This event is called at 4.15pm prompt because the Australian High Commission closes at 5pm.
Come and make your voice heard – stand up for union rights around the world and let them know – "Don’t Jail Ark!"
