At the 2019 Annual APHEDA Dinner, more than three hundred unionists, internationalists, and activists came together in Sydney to celebrate global solidarity! We heard our guest speaker, Naw K’nyaw Paw, give the keynote speech on “The Importance of Solidarity“.
In August this year, special guest speaker Naw K’nyaw Paw will be in Australia to speak about the struggle for justice for the Karen people, the fight for women’s rights in the refugee camps, the stories of Karen refugees along the Thai-Myanmar border, and the pursuit of peace and security in Myanmar.
Last month, we asked you to stand with Cambodian women and their unions as they enter into an uncertain future. And the response you’ve shown confirms what we already know, that Australian unionists know how to act in solidarity.
In June 2019, activists and supporters in Canberra gathered to celebrate global solidarity as they put their minds to the test at the second annual ACT fundraiser trivia night.
The month of May was a busy time for the South Australia APHEDA Activist Group, with an international guest touring and the Terri Daktyl Memorial Dinner.
The 2019 Union Aid Abroad – APHEDA Raffle was a great success! Thank you to all of our supporters who bought and sold tickets. The winners were drawn on Thursday 6 June by Unions NSW Secretary, Mark Morey.
