Car worker dies in southern India

car worker dies in southern indiaThis week, a 51 year old car worker named Francis, died at work from the harassment and victimisation he had recently received from the Pricol company management. The Pricol car component manufacturing factory is located in southern India in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu. Its workforce has a proud history of struggle but has also had to fight brutal repression which has now left two of their leaders in jail on life sentences. In a similar long running car dispute, workers at the Maruti Suzuki factory in northern India have contributed 550,000 rupees (~USA $8,500.00) to the families of the 13 labour activists who are still in jail. There is an active global campaign to support and link car workers in struggle around the world.
