Delegates hail Egypt’s unions

Delegates took to their feet as Egyptian trade unionist Kamal Abbas approached the microphone for his first speech on a whistle-stop tour of England.
A general co-ordinator for Egypt’s Centre for Trade Unions and Workers’ Services, Mr Abbas was a central figure in the 1989 Helwan steelworkers’ strike and the events leading to February’s occupation of Tahrir Square.
Mr Abbas’s work made him a frequent target of the Mubarak regime but he told the packed hall today that he and his colleagues only believed it was their duty.
“Each time I found myself in front of the interrogators, I said to myself: ‘I’m doing my duty’,” he said through an interpreter.
“We released a statement, we organised meetings, we played a role in the revolution.
“And in the last days of the revolution we used the weapon of strikes, and we felt we had done our duty.
“And today as you meet at your delegates’ conference you will discuss how to defend the right of firefighters, who lay down their lives for the sake of duty.
“To all of you I pay my regards,” he said.
Earlier in the day FBU leader Matt Wrack poured scorn on AssetCo, the private company which supplies London’s fire engines.
Mr Wrack said it was a “sickening scandal” that London’s firefighters should be linked to a vicious and repressive regime.
