Congratulations to the New Unionists!

Domestic Workers in Lebanon just concluded the founding congress for the first trade union for domestic workers ever, in the 'Arab world'. This is a joyful, historic and long-awaited day for far too many workers and women. Starting now, there will be a united, solid, democratic, representing voice and this voice will challenge everyone, big and small, who is benefiting and feeding on the continuous, laid-back treatment of thousands of human beings as slaves. Congratulations to all domestic workers in Lebanon and may you inspire and ignite the flame for all your comrades in this boiling region. Power to workers. Power to domestic workers!

Here is the main chant for today-

Solidarity Forever, Solidarity Forever
Solidarity Forever, Solidarity Forever
For the union makes us strong
