Common Declaration from ABC Quimicos and Petrol-Is:


Joint Declaration by Petrol-Is of Turkey and ABC Quimicos of Brazil regarding ban on production, export- import and use of gases as a chemical weapon against people.


We, CUT affiliated ABC Quimicos of Brazil and Turk-Is affiliated Petrol-Is of Turkey, considering the cooperation among the unions in the interests of workers of both countries, declare that the chemical workers of the mentioned countries do not accept the companies to produce, export and import all kinds of harmful gases. And also we do not want the governments' security forces to use the gases as chemical weapons against peaceful demonstrations.

The chemical workers of both countries do know that the harmful chemical gases production and export by companies are not in the interests of workers. The use of harmful chemical gases in recent peaceful protests in both countries have proved this very well.

We, the chemical workers of Brazil and Turkey, hereby request from the Governments of Brazil and Turkey and the manufacturers not to produce, sell and use any type of harmful chemical materials such as tear gas and tear bombs against peaceful protesters.

We, the chemical workers do not want to be part of this violence by security forces.
