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
court appointed administrator at Cipla has been at it again. After being
expelled from Flasko after an attempt to sack the Factory Committee there, he
has now threatened to “crush” the workers. Facing pressure from all side, the
workers at Flasko are standing firm in the defence of workers’ control, their
jobs, and their factories.
