Maruti Suzuki workers attacked once again by the state

As previously reported, the struggle by workers to form their own union at the Maruti Suzuki factory started in 2011. For their efforts, workers have been harassed, sacked and imprisoned. A support campaign was set up to defend and help workers and their families. This week, a protest site was brutally attacked by police, with workers injured and arrested. The Maruti Workers Union released a statement condemning this latest act of repression. Car workers internationally are facing the same pressures. Only a global co-ordinated response will have the strength to push back against these global companies.
