LABOUR SOLIDARITY CHINA:
CALL ON CHINESE AUTHORITIES TO STOP THE VIOLENCE AGAINST DGZ MIGRANT WORKER CENTRE:
On November 20 Huang Qingnan of the Dagongzhe (DGZ) Migrant Worker Centre in Shenzhen, China was seriously injured after being stabbed by two unidentified men. The assault followed on the heels of two other violent attacks on the DGZ Centre in October and November. The Centre provides a free library, labour law education and free legal consultation to migrant workers in Shenzhen. It was suspected that the Centre was being targeted for its recent efforts to raise awareness about the new Labour Contract Law, which requires better employment condition for workers and is scheduled to take effect in January.
Take action now ! Ensure that the authorities condemn and investigate the violence, ensure the protection of civil groups and their staff, and assist the DGZ Centre in resuming operations. To read more and join this campaign go to http://www.cleanclothes.org/urgent/07-12-13.htm
