COLD WAR aggression against China by Western states led by the United States was condemned by the RMT at its annual general meeting today.
But delegates rejected calls for a trade union peace delegation to be sent to China to meet trade unionists there.
Proposing a visit, to be organised through the TUC, Great Western Railway train driver Alex Gordon said that Britain was complicit in the ramping-up of aggression against China by sending a Royal Navy flotilla, including aircraft carrier the Queen Elizabeth and a nuclear submarine, to the South China Sea.
“It is time to stand up for peace and against war and militarism,” he said.
But the motion was defeated. Delegate Daniel Randall from London Underground said that Chinese trade unions were part of the state and that independent trade unions were illegal in China.
The conference passed a motion supporting the right to freedom and self-determination for the Chinese Uighur people, a largely Muslim ethnic group that Western governments accuse China of oppressing.
