Statement from the groups arranging the rally:
We would like to express our full solidarity and support for the 400 striking workers at the Swedish company Alfa Laval’s factory in Pune, India.
On the 18th of December 2013, we organised a rally in support of the workers’ cause. Around 20 people gathered at Alfa Laval Nordic’s offices in Gothenburg, Sweden. We handed out flyers, and held a speech explaining the situation.
Similar actions have taken place across Sweden, and will continue to do so. We cannot condone the way Alfa Laval has exploited the striking workers. Neither can we accept the use of lockouts and strikebreakers. An injury to one is an injury to all.
We stand at your side. With love and solidarity from Sweden,
Everything for Everyone Gothenburg
Revolutionary Communist Youth Gothenburg
Swedish Anarcho-Syndicalist Youth Federation Gothenburg
