INDONESIA: Workers on Protest

In Indonesia the workers are struggling for increasing the minimum-wages. It is fixed every year, this year the capitalists demand is on ridiculous 0,78%, the workers demand is on 16%. In various cities thousands of workers took the street and went on strike, like in Brebes, Tangeran and Bandung. In Brebes the workers-demonstration went from factory to factory to mobilize the workers for the protest. On the island of Jawa also thousands of workers of the textile-industry went on strike. In Indonesia the minimum-wages are just about 100-300$ / 88-264€. It’s a very justified demand of the workers, especially after the burden of the capitalist crises is put on them even harder the last year.
