With court orders and arrest warrants against the management of the Flasko factory, which operates under workers’ control, the decision has been made to hand over the administration of the company to an administrator under the control of the old bosses. The administrator named by the judge has already dismissed 50 workers, starting with all the members of the Factory Council elected by the workers’ assembly.

Earlier this year a Spanish comrade visited the occupied factories in Brazil and wrote this report. This was before 150 armed police raided the factory on orders of a judge. This report gives you a taste of what the CIPLA workers had achieved. We must not allow all this to be destroyed. Please take part in the international solidarity campaign and raise this issue wherever you can in the labour movement.

The workers of the occupied factory CIPLA were surprised this morning by 150 men, heavily armed, from the Federal Police, who invaded the factory in order to arrest the members of the factory committee.

Serge Goulart is the leader of the movement of occupied factories in Brazil. He is also a member of the national council of the PT.
