The Black Lives Matter movement continues to gather strength and support around the world. The IUF stands with those confronting and challenging racism and fighting for equality. We salute our affiliates in the USA leading the fight for racial justice, and who have expressed strong support for the movement. Racist exploitation and discrimination are deeply rooted in colonialism, slavery and post-colonial domination – they must be consistently opposed at all levels, including inside the labour movement.
