Early on Thursday morning, the police brutally repressed PepsiCo workers who occupied the factory three weeks ago in defense of their jobs. The 600 workers gained national and international solidarity for their struggle. On Thursday, they put up a struggle against the eviction, which was televised in all major Argentine news channels.

After the eviction, there was a massive show of solidarity, with hundreds of letters and tweets. The Madres de La Plaza de Mayo called for a mobilization in support of the workers and the Sarmiento line of the train organized a work stoppage.

While other higher education unions are going on strike in defense of their workers and against the genocide in Gaza, the bureaucratic leadership of PSC-CUNY just crushed a resolution calling on the university to divest from Israel and to drop the charges against Palestinian activists arrested on April 30.
