An international call for solidarity in support of the workers at the Garrahan Hospital.

Following the declarations of the Minister of Health, Gines Gonzalez Garcia, where the ancilliary workers were accused of being “public health criminals practising terrorism”, various social and political organisations have begun to mobilise in support of the workers. This call is a way of showing solidarity. We ask you to send  it to those that you know in our country, Argentina, and abroad.

If you would like to know more about the conflict please see Solidarity with the workers of Garrahan, a hospital in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

We propose the following model letter to be sent:

"I/We worker/trade union representative/s are in solidarity with the just struggle of the Garrahan Hospital workers in Buenos Aires, who are demanding a wages rise and an increase in human and material resources for the Hospital.

We reject the slanders, threats and intimidation carried out in the last few days by the Hospital management and the Ministry of Health which described the workers as "health-care terrorists" together with pressing the workers to give up their demands under the threat of dismissal.

Fellow workers of Garrahan Hospital, we are following with great interest your struggle and we commit ourselves to spread the news of your dispute to the workers of our country. At the same time we will publicly denounce the repressive and anti-labour attitude of the hospital management as well as that of the Argentinian government representatives.

Forward to victory!
