Farmers from all over the country have gathered at all four borders of Delhi, the capital city of India braving the Delhi winter, tear gas and water cannons from Delhi police. As the struggle enters 8th day, support from not only national level but from international bodies is pouring in for the just demands of the peasants.

The World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU) which represents more than 105 million workers who live, work and struggle in 130 countries of the 5 continents has congratulated the awe-inspiring strike that shacked  India with the participation of 25 crore workers, farmers, and employees of all sectors.

India’s trade union movement emphatically and strongly condemned the anti-worker, anti-people and anti-national policies of the Modi government.

The WFTU has also expressed its support to the trade union movement in India. Several trade unions are also by the side of farmers’ unions which are in stay-in protests in the four borders of Delhi, continuing their united struggle for the scrapping of the three farm-laws and also the Electricity Bill 2020.

The international class-oriented trade union movement supports the common demands of farmers and workers and all the other demands of the November 26th strike.

We strongly condemn the repression of numerous strike gatherings in several states of India and the false propaganda of the Indian government that aims to defame the trade union struggle and to divide the popular strata. These unacceptable practices reveal once again the authoritarianism of the Indian government but will be in vain.  We call upon the workers and farmers of India to continue their struggle until the full satisfaction of their fair demands.

The World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU) was established in Paris on 3 October 1945. WFTU office is based in Athens, Greece.
