Pyongyang, august 6 (KCNA) — The South Korean authorities brutally cracked down upon the struggle of workers of the Mando Machine Company, according to the South Korean newspaper Kyunghyang Daily News on September 4.
They walked away some 2,430 workers and announced that they would bring “legal actions” against more than 100 union leaders and unionists.
The workers of the Manbo Machine Company have waged strikes from mid-August in protest against the employer’s plan to lay off a quarter of workers.
The authorities deployed some 14,000 policemen of 124 companies, helicopters, excavators and other repressive tools at factories under the company in seven areas including Asan, South Chungchong Province.
The riot police inflicted heavy injuries upon unionists= legs of some unionists were broken= and children, women and family members, who joined them in their strike, were suffocated by tear gas.
The bloody suppression clearly proves that the present South Korean regime is a group of fascists as the preceding regimes were.
