Things have never been easy for the world's largest working class, and now they're getting harder

Repression of labour rights defenders in China has been growing for more than a year.

The Chinese government has been cracking down on labour non-governmental organizations (NGOs) including the following measures:

  • Forced eviction from their offices
  • Systematic use of violence against workers' representatives
  • At least seven labour activists still in prison, some serving life sentences
  • And a new law which will make it even harder for these NGOs to operate


The Hong Kong Confederation of Trade Unions, the only independent trade union in the country, has launched a major global campaign to demand that the Chinese government respect workers' rights and end police violence.
