LO Norway urges the Norwegian Government to put immediate pressure on Israel to stop this daily aggression against the Palestinian people.
LO-Norway call upon all international trade unions, labour organizations, and other civil society organizations to take urgent action by requesting their governments intervention to stop the dirty war and continuous massacres against the Palestinians civilians and to lift the closures imposed on the Palestinian territories to enable Palestinians to develop and improve their national economy to be able to meet the people needs from opportunities for jobs and income.
LO-Norway call upon the Israeli Government especially the War Minister Amir Peretz who gave the orders to his army to stop their crimes of bloodshed of the civilians and to be integrated in real peace negotiation with the elected Palestinian leaders to reach to fair peace Peace based on the International law and Security Council Resolutions that enables the Palestinian to live in peace in their independent state on all territories occupied in 1967 aside the state of Israel.
