INDIA::: Indian workers confront globalisation by fighting on many fronts

The well publicised Maruti Suzuki dispute of the last couple of years is only one of many struggles that Indian workers have undertaken in the ongoing industrialisation of India. The repression unleashed against the Maruti Suzuki workers can be seen by the fact that over 100 are still in jail. A fundraising campaign has been set up to help these jailed workers. Following on from actions by garment workers in neighbouring Bangladesh, workers in Chennai are also taking action. Construction workers in the western city of Ahmedabad are also mobilising while the dispute against union busting at Frito-Lay (PepsiCo owned) is now getting more international solidarity.  source:::
