Workers fired at for taking part in May Day rally now reinstated...

Sandeep from Gorakhpur is telling us about the situation after firing on workers on 3rd May in which 2 were seriously injured. Workers were protesting removal of 18 workers for taking part in a May day rally. Due to continued protest since then workers have been reinstated. But other similar protests in nearby factories have not yielded results yet. Some workers were arrested in between but are now released. Workers are now planning a big rally on 16th May and are prepared for a long fight. For more Sandeep can be reached on 08447011935
