Hooray for Chinese Workers’ Struggles!

Aug 20, 2018

China Labor Watch recently reported on its study of 7,000 working class mobilizations in China from 2015 to 2017. These class struggles broke out both in heavily industrialized areas and in less industrialized areas, where the bosses impose lower pay. The most strikes were in the middle of China in Henan, in construction, transport, and distribution.

Chinese workers fight against exploitation in spite of repression, militants being arrested, and organizations being outlawed. Class struggle knows no borders!
