Peruvian Labor Federation CGTP called for an one-day general strike for June 20, 2019.
By CSP-Conlutas Media Workgroup
Peruvian working people have many reasons to stand up and fight back.
Big corporations have benefited from natural resources and public funding.
The main one is the Brazilian contractor corporation Oderbrecht.
Oderbrecht exchanged public contracts for millionaire bribes to top officials.
The mining corporation “Las Bambas” took communal lands to build a road and the protestors were arrested and prosecuted.
The oil company ‘Transpetrol” is poisoning the rivers from which the “Loreto” community lives.
The State changed labor laws on the benefit of these same corporations.
The one-day general strike is meant to say STOP to business as usual.
