Black and ethnic minority members

Black and ethnic minority RMT members are organising for equality and against racism. 



Assassination of female politicians in Brazil

A few months ago, we heard that Brazilian activist and comrade, sister Tamaris Rizzo, keynote speaker at RMT’s reparations conference, was facing difficulties in Brazil, with political turmoil and social/ethnic cleansing in her community.

Tamaris, an activist for ’21 days Without Racism,' alerted us to; 12 persons being shot dead in her local area, military rule over the police, and, personal difficulties with losing her teaching job because of her trade union and political activism.

Paul Robeson - a celebration of his life and work


Our Black and Ethnic Minority Members' Conference this year passed a resolution calling for an event during Black History Month to mark the 40th anniversary of the passing of the revolutionary Paul Robeson.  Such an event should be “dedicated to educate our members on the history of the role of Robeson and members of the NUR/RMT in the Spanish war against facism.”

It's a sad loss to lose any lives, but so much sadder when it's a young life.

Recently, Leon Brumant attended the RMT's National Black and Ethnic Minority Members conference in Manchester. His inquisitive nature and thirst for knowledge, made his enthusiasm infectious.
