The World Federation of Trade Union salutes the astounding and spectacular massiveness of the great All-India General Strike, against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) which took place yesterday January 8th, 2020.

The WFTU affiliates lead the struggles of Indian workers against the anti-labour policies of Modi’s government and decisively contributed to the organization of the unprecedented strike which according to estimations is the bigger ever strike with the participation of the 250 million workers, employees, farmers, and rural labourers.

The international class-oriented trade union movement expresses once again its internationalist solidarity with the people of India and is encouraged and strengthened from this huge fight.
