IndustriALL Global Union – a global union federation that represents 50 million workers in 140 countries in the mining, energy and manufacturing sectors in its resolution adopted on May 24th, condemned Israel’s genocide in Gaza and called on all affiliates `to support the boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel, as called for by the people of Palestine`.

`Israel has killed over 35,000 Palestinians, including over 14,000 children, over 77,000 have been wounded, and over 2.3 million – more than four fifths of Gaza’s population – have been displaced. Hospitals, schools, universities, ambulances, medical and food aid convoys, water facilities, and roads, have all been deliberately targeted by the Israeli forces, decimating life in Gaza. Journalists and their families have been killed, threatened, censored, arrested and assaulted in Gaza and the West Bank to prevent information on Israeli crimes being broadcast. Israel has continued the attack on Gaza and increased violence and ethnic cleansing against the Palestinians in the West Bank. The most recent Israeli attacks on Rafah, a supposed ‘safe place’ where an estimated 1.4 million Palestinians have taken refuge, are despicable, and a clear disregard of UN and ICJ directions and against international law` – the resolution reads.
