Victimised Australian trade unionist Bob Carnegie will find out the verdict of the court case against him on 2 April, with sentencing expected some time after that.
Campaign pressure, including direct action, between now and April, and again between the verdict and the sentencing, can make a big difference.
The Maritime Union of Australia and the International Trade Union Confederation have released a YouTube video promoting the campaign to defend Bob. Support continues to grow in the Australian labour movement, and new messages of support have also been received from construction workers’ unions in Galicia (Spain), and Japan.
Supporters in Britain plan further action in the next few weeks. To keep up to date with the campaign, see bobcarnegie.wordpress.com
