After 40 days of suffering and struggle, the workers of
Flasko (the worker-occupied factory in Sao Paulo, Brazil) managed to re-establish
electricity supply to the factory from the CPFL electricity company.
We have received the latest Bulletin of the Occupied Factories in Brazil (in Portuguese and PDF format) dedicated to the struggle to regain control of CIPLA and Interfibra after the judge imposed an administrator and sacked all the delegates to the Factory Councils. Download the bulletin here.
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.
In this video interview (in Spanish), Serge Goulart, the national coordinator of the Occupied Factories Movement in Brazil gives an overview of the latest situation of the struggle against the decision of the Lula government to organise a judicial-police intervention against CIPLA and Interfibra and the attacks on the workers at Flaskó.
