Peru's civil service unions are fighting a new law which would strip them of the right to negotiate pay and deny the right to strike in certain (as yet unspecified) 'essential' sectors.

If you believe all workers have the right to collective bargaining and an independent union - join the campaign now!

Today we've launched a new Twitter campaign to show our solidarity with trade unionists in Turkey and our anger at the violent crackdown they're facing. If you're on Twitter, please tweet the following, direct to Turkish PM Erdogan's account:

"@RT_Erdogan Polis şiddetini durdur, protestolara izin ver! Stop police violence, allow protests! http://bit.ly/18Q2O8Y #direngeziseninleyiz"

Let's let our Turkish comrades know how much support they have around the world!
