Here is a report on recent events in Nigeria. Five students were
killed by a cultist gang, that is a neo-fascist type organisation, at
Ife University. Our comrades were closely involved in the events and
some of them are lucky to be alive, as the gang were looking for some
of them. Luckily our comrades escaped.
"When I started work here 5 years ago I could see very clearly - now I
couldn’t see very well, thanks to WAPCO". These words, made by a WAPCO
worker give a clear indication of condition of work in this
"slave-camp". The working conditions are no better than most other
factories. It follows the all too familiar pattern in Nigeria - more
work, less pay.
In spite of the fact that women constitute a sizeable percent of the
Nigerian workforce, putting in the same time as their male counterpart,
with their labour of no less value, and in the vast majority of the
cases, having the same responsibilities, women are still discriminated
against as "second class" workers.
