Hasan free – union campaigns work

23 Apr 2012, By

It’s always good to know when a campaign works, and feedback on campaigns we’ve run. So, here from LabourStart is an update on the campaign to get Kosovan metalworker trade union leader Hasan Abazi out of a Serbian jail. Key point: Hasan is back home.

Hasan’s release followed a two-week long online campaign by LabourStart which generated nearly 8,000 messages to the Serbian government. Jyrki Raina, General Secretary of the International Metalworkers’ Federation, said:

“Worldwide mobilisation, including the immediate reaction of LabourStart activists and unions pressing the Serbian government through the EU, embassies and other diplomatic channels has clearly been decisive in winning Hasan’s release.”
