Brazil: Solidarity with attacked civil servants

Hired thugs beat rank and file trade union protesters

Last Monday, a group of civil servants in Praia Grande, Brazil, who are in struggle for a wage increase of 12.5%, occupied their trade union (linked to Força Sindical), offices, against the treacherous actions of the union leadership which threatened to sell out their dispute.

After five hours waiting for the Union president, they were surprised by 20 henchmen and they were beaten in a cowardly manner. Please, send urgently messages of your solidarity with these workers against such abuse.

They mainly fight for a real increase in their wage and against the president of the union. This is their first struggle in 8 years. For many of these workers, it is the first struggle of their lives. They need your solidarity! Send your solidarity message to mauricio.de.oliveira.filho@gmail.com
