Conference
2002 National Black Members' Conference
Date
23 May 2002
Decision
Carried

Conference looks forward to the return of Pakistan to full membership of the Commonwealth and recalls the commitment made by General Musharraf of a return of democratic government in Pakistan. We urge the National Black Members’ Committee, National Executive Council, International Committee, National Affiliated Political Fund and UNISON Link MPs to:

1)Press the Government of Pakistan not to repeat any army operation, similar to that taken on 19 June 1992, which resulted in mass arrest, including killing and restriction of movement of over 1,500 Mohajir and supporters of the Muttahida Quami Movement;

2)Invite UNISON’s International Officer to address this issue at the next Black Members’ Conference 2003.
