(en) ait russia: Demands of anarcho-syndicalists of India in connection with the epidemic [machine translation]

Date Wed, 1 Apr 2020 08:03:19 +0300

STATEMENT BY THE LIBERTARY FRONT OF SOLIDARITY (MEM), a friendly organization of the International Workers Association in India ---- The spread of coronavirus and the consequences of quarantine without proper adequate planning are detrimental to the working class. In Delhi alone, one hundred thousand workers have to stay home because of quarantine without getting paid. Moreover, due to the shutdown of public transport (railways and intercity buses), many workers have to return to their villages on foot for hundreds of kilometers. The state of Madhya Pradesh is also in crisis. ---- Health workers are at the forefront of this crisis. Due to the inattention of the government machine, they do not even have adequate means of protection against infection. In addition, constant danger threatens workers involved in the delivery and provision of all vital services to people.

"Muktivadi ekta morcha", together with other workers, demands from the central government and the government of Madhya Pradesh special protection and care for these brave and unprotected workers.

Our requirements:

1. Firms and the government must ensure that informal sector workers are paid (regardless of whether their firm granted them "worker" status or not) monthly compensation of 7,000 rupees.

2. Delivery workers, cleaners and workers in all vital services should be provided with high-quality protective equipment (masks, gloves, etc.)

3. For the duration of the epidemic and after it, such workers as those involved in cleaning and delivery should be given the official status of "employee", their wages should be increased, and standards for delivery and collection of garbage should be set so that people I didn't have to work 12 hours to feed myself.

4. Irregularly employed and unemployed should be paid a minimum guaranteed monthly allowance.

5. All working families and their dependents should be provided with free food, fuel, medicine and care.
