Freedom for all imprisoned Maruti-Suzuki-Workers! International Days of Solidarity and Protest 4th/5th April!

Since years the struggle of the Automobile Workers of Maruti-Suzuki in Manesar/Indien is a symbol of successfull fight for organizing of unions and the unity of permanent and contract workers. A broad solidarity movement of the workers and the masses in Gurgaon is opposing the scandalous and long term detainment of 148 strike leaders. Over years, again and again, there were mass rallies and strikes against the imprisonment and class justice serving Maruti Suzuki Company. The verdict of March 18, 2017, with life sentences for 13 strike activists and leaders of the Maruti Suzuki Workers Union plus other workers with long year sentences is intended to break this resoluteness. Hundreds of families is stolen their living.

„The MSWU body members have been targeted because they have been the leadership of the struggle since 2011 against illegal contract worker system and for Trade Union rights and dignity of labour. It is a 'class attack' as in the words of Maruti CEO RC Bhargava. All workers know that this manifestly unjust verdict is to 'teach a lesson' to us by those in power that we should not fight for our rights and dignity on the shop-floor and beyond. ... We appeal to all workers and pro-worker forces to observe 4th/5th April 2017 as all-India and International Days of Protest and show solidarity in whatever ways possible. The struggling workers in the Gurgaon-Manesar-Bawal-Neemrana industrial belt in the states of Haryana-Rajasthan are showing that they will not relent on their legitimate rights and strengthen their class unity against the capitalist onslaught." (appeal of Maruti Suzuki Workers Union, March 29, 2017) Let us Automotive Workers give support worldwide, that this act of Maruti Suzuki Company in collaboration with the fascist Modi-Government will be rejected!
