Indian car workers demonstrate in Gurgaon

The regions of Gurgaon and Manesar, near the Indian capital of New Dehli, are huge industrial areas that employ millions of people. The workers at the car plant of Maruti Suzuki staged a number of heroic actions before they were brutally repressed by the government (see 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2015). Nevertheless, workers are still rebelling against the brutal conditions of these new workplaces. Earlier this month, thousands of auto workers rallied to protest against repression, low wages and for the right to organise. Meanwhile, the campaign to release the imprisoned Pricol 8 continues.
