Pakistan: Workers‘ leader killed in suicide attack

By Farooq Tariq

October 21, 2009 — A prominent labour leader Master Khudad Khan was killed in suicide attack in Peshawar on October 15. He was on his way to a meeting and was passing by an intelligence centre when a religious fanatic blew himself up killing him and several others on the spot.

The unfortunate side of this episode is that the body of Master Khudad has not handed over to his relatives. A picture of the dead bodies printed in a local paper confirmed to the relatives on October 18 that Master Khudad was among the victims.He had been missing from home since October 15 and they had no clue of his whereabouts.

Master Khudad was the deputy general secretary of Pakistan Workers Confederation and a founding member of Bonded Labour Liberation Front. The Pakistan Workers Confederation is the main body of trade unions in Pakistan.

Master Khudad was elected provincial information secretary of Labour Party Pakistan at its founding congress held on November 21, 2004, in the North West Frontier Province. He remained a committed member of LPP until his death.

I had not had many meetings with him but when he accepted our invitation to join the LPP and took active part in mobilising the membership for the two-day founding congress of the LPP in 2004, I had a chance to have discussions with him in detail. He agreed to be part of the LPP leadership.

Master Khudad’s main contribution to the working-class movement in Pakistan has been his role in establishing Bonded Labour Liberation Front. He helped many to flee from the chains of slavery.

Farooq Ahmad, a member national executive committee LPP, in collaboration of others is launching a campaign to recover his body.

This is the second main leader of LPP who has lost his life in a suicide attack. Earlier Abdullah Qureshi, a senior leader of LPP, was killed in December 2007 in Matta.

Interviews mit TeilnehmerInnen der Frauenkonferenz der Internationalen Gewerkschaftsbundes

Posted by entdinglichung - 22. Oktober 2009

Der Internationale Gewerkschaftsbund (ITUC-CSI-IGB) hält derzeit in Brüssel seine erste Weltfrauenkonferenz ab (einer honduranischen Delegierten wurde von der dortigen Militärjunta die Teilnahme verboten), hier die Links zu durchaus lesenswerten Interviews mit einigen Teilnehmerinnen der Konferenz … bleibt zu hoffen, dass das Ganze zu einer dauerhaften Vernetzung von Gewerkschafterinnen weltweit seinen Beitrag leistet und nicht nur eine Veranstaltung der Gewerkschaftsbürokratie bleibt:

* Nadia Shabana (Palestine General Federation of Trade Unions): „Trade unions must increase awareness about climate change which affects the very poor in the developing countries“

* Cheung Lai-Ha (Hong Kong Confederation of Trade Unions): „Employers see women as second-class labour“

* Daniela Alexieva (Конфедерация на независимите синдикати в България): „Give youth a chance!“

* Marcelina Bautista (Apoyo y Capacitación para Empleadas del Hogar/Confederación de Latinoamérica y el Caribe de las Trabajadoras del Hogar): „If you are at the office today, it is maybe thanks to the domestic worker you have at home“

* Louisa Ait-Rached (Fédération nationale du textile, tissage et cuir): „I want to exchange experiences and take back ideas that I can put into practice in my trade union work“

* Erin Harrison (Canadian Labour Congress): „Women and young people are the first victims of the crisis“

* Nina Nyembezi (Labour Research Service): „The “Decisions for Life” campaign in South Africa aims to reach out to 10,000 young women workers“
