Good News from Networks
WE thought it's best to begin this first post of Kanlungan Centre Foundation Inc. with good news about the gains of struggle of migrant workers around the world.
The good news comes from William Gois of the Migrant Forum in Asia (MFA) who wrote to announce that the Indonesian Parliament deliberated on April 10 the ratification of the United Nations 1990 Convention on the Protection of the Rights if All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families (UN 1990 MWC).
“All factions in the Indonesian Parliament agreed to ratify the UN 1990 MWC. We are hoping that within the week the Indonesian government will make the official announcement of the ratification of the convention,” Gois said in his email to MFA members.
Gois expressed his gratitude “for the work of all the partners on the ground, the MFA members, the grassroots communities, migrant communities and migrants’ rights advocates in Indonesia who have made this momentous day in history possible.”
Kanlungan also awaits with hope the official announcement of the Indonesian government.
