[Marxism] Hong Kong: Workers strike for democracy

September 30th, 2014 · No Comments

This is a note from LabourStart about the situation in Hong Kong. This strike call pits workers, the one social force that can win this battle, against the dictatorship, and raises the possibility of drawing in workers in China itself and going beyond bourgeois democracy to genuine democracy. The note says: On September 28, the Hong Kong Confederation of Trade Unions declared “we cannot let the students fight alone”, and called for workers to strike in support of 4 demands: the immediate release of all the arrested, an end to the suppression of peaceful assembly, replacing the “fake universal suffrage” formula with the genuine political reform workers have been demanding, and the resignation of Chief Executive Leung Chun Ying.
