Workers' rights campaigner John Foley has begun a rooftop protest at Liverpool John Lennon Airport to highlight the exploitation of cabin crew by Ryanair.
In a phone call from the roof, John, a comrade of Liverpool Solidarity Federation, said: "The exploitation of staff by Ryanair must stop. The authorities have continually turned a blind eye to this issue, but we will not."
Please e-mail messages of solidarity and support to liverpoolsf[at]solfed.org.uk and we will pass them on to John.
Below is a statement released through Liverpool SolFed by the Ryanair Don't Care campaign:
The direct action protest is to highlight the recruitment-for-termination policy of Ryanair towards young students wishing to follow their dream as cabin crew. Wrecking so many young lives for profit must stop and we call on all shareholders to sack the whole board at Ryanair NOW.
Direct action protests will continue at all airports where Ryanair do business...
We would also like to thank Liverpool Solidarity Federation for their continued support for our campaign.
