(en) Turkey, One Day Strike

      A - I N F O S  N E W S  S E R V I C E

Yesterday, public workers went a one day strike all 
around Turkey. The action was planned and initiated 
by KESK-clerk union (Confederation of Public Workers 
Syndicates); it was also supported by all other labor 
and clerk unions. The strike was quite successful-in 
bigger cities about with 100%  although it was declared 
as "forbidden" by the government. Post-offices, 
train-stations, schools and (except the emergency 
services) hospitals were all off. Teachers, doctors and 
all other office workers were marching in lots of 
different places. (Pigs seemed quite puzzled about 
which demo they must "police" :) )

KESK is leaded by pre-1980 socialist militants for now 
who behave as "social-democrats" in worker unions; this 
action must have been the most effective and massive one 
since 1980.
