The World Federation of Trade Unions representing more than 92 million affiliated workers, in every corner of the world expresses its solidarity to the Roofers trade Union and its Head Cliff Smith for his unfair prosecution and arrest.

We salute the militant stance of comrade Cliff Smith who is struggling for the benefits of the workers in their workplaces and their communities. We strongly condemn his arrest for his trade union activity. His prosecution is proving that the capitalists’ laws are made to guard their profitability and can turn against the militant workers when they’re fighting for their rights.

The WFTU calls all its affiliated organisations to show their solidarity to the WFTU cadre, Cliff Smith and demands from the USA court to drop all the unfair charges against his trade union activity.
