The General Workers' Union (UGT) and Labour Commissions (CCOO) condemned the brutal attack committed Thursday 17th August, in Barcelona and Cambrils.

UGT and CCOO call on workers to join today, Friday 18th of August, at 12:00, a minute of silence at the entrance of their working centres to show their solidarity with the victims and their commitment to peace, justice, tolerance, and democracy. CCOO and UGT also encourage all their affiliates and all citizens to attend and participate in the various events convened in different locations in Spain.

ETUCE strongly condemns these appalling attacks and expresses its solidarity and support with their member organisations, as well as with the victims and their relatives. We strongly encourage all our member organisations and their affiliates to take part in the moment of silence. Let us all stand together against violence and extremism.
