Protest: Stop Israel Railways Sacking Arab Railworkers

I blogged a little while ago about Israel Railways' new policy that level crossing guards require a firearms licence, which threatens the jobs of Israeli Arab railworkers.

On my suggestion, RMT is holding a protest at the Israeli embassy in London on Monday lunchtime (11th May, 1pm - nearest station High Street Kensington).

Bob Crow has asked for a meeting with the Israeli ambassador, so an RMT delegation can discuss our objections to this attack on our fellow railworkers. The embassy has not yet replied to the request.

If you can, please come down to the embassy to show your support for RMT's protest and your solidarity with Israeli Arab railworkers.
