Indonesian protesting workers attacked by police

Last Sunday, workers participating in a weekly protest were baton charged and violently dispersed by police. These workers have been holding this regular protest as part of a long running dispute. In 2012, over 1,000 women workers were summarily dismissed by the Victory Chingluh Indonesia and Panarub Industry companies. These workers were producing for the sports companies Adidas and Mizuno. They were never paid the wages they were owed or any severance pay. Unfortunately, this is not the first time that a company has closed down without paying their workers.
