We, the International League of Peoples’ Struggle (ILPS), send our most heartfelt condolences to the (APTUF) and the family and friends of Gulzar Ahmed Chaudhary, APTUF secretary general, who passed away last February 14.
The passing away of Gulzar Chaudhary is a great loss not only to the Pakistan trade union movement, but also to the peace and anti-imperialist movements inside and outside Pakistan. But we are comforted by his long and outstandingly fruitful service to the working class and the broad masses of the people.
He will always be remembered as someone who offered his whole life in the service of the working class, and in fighting for a society that is based on and benefits from national independence, democracy, development, social justice and peace.
The ILPS pays tribute to Gulzar Ahmed Chaudhary and the APTUF for their contributions to the advance of the anti-imperialist andin Pakistan and the world.
