Pakistani workers facing terrorist charges

Four railway workers in the Pakistani city of Rawalpindi have been detained under that country’s harsh anti terrorism laws for taking part in a strike on July 23. The drivers have been accused of trying to organise other workers in a locomotive shed to take part in the strike. Unfortunately this is not the first time that workers have been arrested under anti-terrorism laws, with six power loom workers from Faisalabad having to endure four years in jail for also organising a strike.
