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.

The Labor Movement Is Key for Palestinian Liberation

As part of the global movement in solidarity with Palestine and against the genocidal policies of the Israeli government, labor unions are taking action and demanding a ceasefire. This is not only a welcomed addition to the movement, but a necessary one that concretely shows the power of the working class.
