Sri Lankan Ansell unionists denied visa to visit Australia

Australian unions rallied outside the headquarters of latex manufacturer Ansell, after the Australian government denied visas to visiting Sri Lankan comrades. The Sri Lankan unionists are in dispute with Ansell in Sri Lanka, after the company fired nearly 300 workers who went on strike in support of 11 sacked colleagues and trade union representatives in October 2013. The dispute at Ansell in Sri Lanka continues, and international solidarity will be crucial for victory.
