Sri Lanka terrorist attack: Solidarity message by the World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU)

The World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU), on behalf of its 97 million members in 130 countries of the 5 continents, expresses its sincere condolences to the families of the victims in Sri Lanka. 
We join our sadness and sorrow with the working class and people of Sri Lanka who faced this terrorist attack resulting in the unjust death of hundreds of innocent people.
The international class-oriented trade union movement condemns this terrorist act, which consequences will be against the people and the workers, regardless of the physical and moral perpetrators. 
There is no a doubt that the government, bourgeoisie and imperialists will exploit this fact to hit the struggles of the workers, the democratic and trade union rights, to restrict popular freedoms and to strengthen state violence and state authoritarianism.

Dear colleagues,

We express our sympathy and our sorrow for what happened.
We and our affiliated trade unions will stand by you.
