On June 29, the workers of Flasko received good news: the federal judge José Maria Barreto Pedrazolli, from the Campinas/SP circuit, ruled that the electricity company CPFL should reestablish electricity supply "in the face of clear danger of damage" to the factory.
CPFL had cut off electricity supply to Flasko on June 27th (see: [VIDEO] Serge Goulart updates situation in occupied factories in Brazil) as part of the campaign of harassment against the Occupied Factories movement by the Lula government.
The workers are aware that "powerful forces are gathered to attempt to destroy the Occupied Factories movement, and therefore only with the continuation and spreading of our struggle will we achieve the end of the government intervention in Cipla and Interfibra and also the maintenance of Flasko under workers' control"
They add that, "surely, they will appeal against the decision of the judge, but we will be more vigilant than ever to prevent another cut in the energy supply, and we will try to demonstrate that CPFL must negotiate the outstanding bills with the workers, and not with the administrator of CIPLA and Interfibra who has been imposed by the judge, because Mr Rainoldo Uessler has no judicial power to speak in the name of Flasko".
For all these reasons, the Flasko workers will participate in the national rally called by the CUT in Brasilia on July 4th, where they will demand from President Lula and from the Minister of Social Security Luis Marinho the immediate withdrawal of the Federal intervention against Cipla, Interfibra and Flaskó.
The struggle of the Occupied Factories continues and will continue to shine on!
