A Labour Party has been launched in Nigeria and is
standing candidates in the forthcoming elections. Unfortunately it is dominated
by bourgeois politicians, in many cases people who have abandoned the rotten
ship of the discredited parties that make up the present set up. That may
explain why so few workers have joined it so far.
While promising to meet the unions, the Nigerchin management
is trying to use scan labour to break the strike. On recognising the workers’
right to join any union thy wish they have raised the excuse that they must
first consult with the owners back in China! These workers are fighting
for basic trade union rights. Please support the solidarity campaign and raise
this in your union.
