In July this year, 89 workers at the Shenzhen Jasic Technology Co. Ltd
demanded the right to set up a workplace union. In the past decade there
has been an explosion of strikes in Shenzhen, and this dispute is one of
the many where workers have demanded better working conditions, owed wages,
unpaid social insurance, and severance pay. Yet, the Jasic case is unusual
in that it was supported openly by a group of some 50 self-proclaimed
Maoists and Marxist university students, along with a small group of older
citizens. Coming from different parts of China, they organised themselves
into a ‘Jasic Worker Support Group’ and descended on Jasic to stand in
solidarity with the workers who were battling the police.
