Foxconn strikers march in China

Issue No. 2336

Over 1,000 workers struck last week over working conditions at a Foxconn plant in China.

The workers demonstrated through the streets of Fengcheng in Jiangxi province.

Some 200 workers on the night shift began the strike on Thursday night, with more labourers on the day shift joining them the next day.

Workers threatened to not return to the plant after February's New Year holiday.
