Chinese workers protest… Where is the hoped for communist prosperity?! | Articles and studies

Many look with joy and sometimes envy at the Chinese for the development their country has seen in recent decades. They imagine that that communist state has turned into the paradise of workers and peasants that the proletariat dreams of, that Karl Marx and Lenin sang about, after it became the factory of the world, and the second most powerful economy in the universe.

Anyone who has lived in China knows that the paradise promised by the Communists will not be fulfilled. The Chinese worker is one of the most tired and hardest workers in the world, and he works under a very harsh capitalist system, run by a tyrannical government, which has nothing to do with socialism or communism, except with slogans aimed at is to the tools of power, money and people.

“hoku” slavery

The daily working hours for a Chinese worker reaches 12 hours, in ideal jobs, and increases in most places, outside and inside cities. The government implements the “hukou” system, which blocks good job opportunities from the poor and middle class, and prohibits the Chinese from moving from one workplace to another without the approval of the Communist Party leadership and the security authorities. The system pushes the Chinese to flee their villages to work in cities or to move through smuggling convoys to areas far from their homes, to settle the income of labor camps or shared rooms, to live a disgusting life similar to to slavery.

Many are exposed to forced labor, with gangs who smuggle them and help them work under their direction. The disasters of forced labor occur in major crises that occur from time to time, in the form of labor protests in important places and are monitored by the media.

Angry demonstrations

Over the past few days, the media has reported on the angry protests that have broken out among workers in a number of regions of China, most notably at the world’s largest factory for the production of iPhone phones, which has led to factory workers with clashed with the riot police. and break the equipment of “Foxconn”, the local manufacturer of “Foxconn” phones. Camel. The crisis began with the government declaring a quarantine in Zhengzhou. The American company, iPhone, loved the isolation measures that the authorities applied harshly and violently, which prevented the movement of people and supply factories, and threatened to withdraw from China and expand its business in India.

The factories produce around 40% of Apple’s components and are the main supplier of iPhone 14 phones on the world markets. Apple has suffered a drop in profits, at a time when 22 of the 41 economic sectors in the country are suffering heavy losses due to the “mandatory shutdown” policy that the authorities have strictly imposed in places where the presence of Covid- 19 is suspected.

The Americans began negotiations with India to transfer assembly and manufacturing equipment there, in parallel with the establishment of other factories in Vietnam. The head of the province feared that Apple would fail to meet the demands of its customers during Christmas celebrations, as happened during Christmas celebrations. the November sales season. The official in the Communist Party intervened in negotiations with the “Fexcon” workers to persuade them to continue working and sleeping in the factory, fearing that the losses in the country’s economy due to the frequent closures after the largest area of ​​electronic industries in the country.

False rewards

To the astonishment of the workers, the official promised them a 400 yuan increase in production incentives, end-of-season bonuses and food for everyone. 200 thousand workers, after days of hard work, sleeping next to their equipment, in a very difficult environment, and having no access to food, discovered that the promises of officials were nothing but lies. The workers took advantage of the infection of some of them with Covid-19, so they asked to leave the factory, so the administration brought in the police to prevent them from leaving, so most of them went through the walls fled.

The labor mafia, which is closely related to party officials, was active in bringing in 100,000 workers to replace those who refused to work, and the administration took advantage of this and did not agree to pay the dues of those who resigned in not protest against their poor conditions, and expose them to death in an unhealthy and inhumane environment. When the new workers arrived, they were surprised by the poor condition of the workplaces and the false promises made to them by business brokers, that the wages would be paid after 30 consecutive days of work, amounting to 3,000 yuan – the minimum for a worker is 3,800 yuan per month – and its first payment will be paid out next March, after the “Festival of the Moon” is over, which will start from late January to mid-February.

“moon festival”

The Moon Festival is considered the most sacred family event for Chinese families, and witnesses a mass exodus of workers from large industrial cities to their places of origin. The number of returnees to their hometowns is about 400 million people on outbound trips, and the same number of returnees. Discovering the trap the employment mafia and the regional leaders had set them in, the new workers joined the old workers in demanding their usurped rights, smashing factory equipment and police vehicles in a bloody clash broadcast live on social media. media broadcast, and leaked abroad.

Thousands protested in the city of Urumqi at the end of last week, after the fire engines could not reach a burning residential building because the fire engine’s battery was dead, and hundreds of cars next door did not move in front of the property, since the authorities quarantined imposed on the capital of East Turkestan (Xinjiang), extended 100 days. 10 Uyghur Muslims were burned inside the large property, and the government did not lift the partial siege except after protests and clashes, which lasted for 3 days, with workers all hoping to fulfill their basic needs in peace.

Elite University Uprising

On Sunday, November 27, the largest wave of civil disobedience spread in China, since 1989, in protest that workers were prevented from leaving their homes in Shanghai to reach their workplaces, after losing the ability to get food and money for provide for their families. Then came the remarkable demonstration in the middle of the elite university with a global reputation (Tsinghua) in the heart of Beijing, of students who objected to the violence practiced by the police on citizens looking for work, who violated the restrictions of compulsory closure, to restore a historical scene in which there are signs of a new clash between the working people and intellectuals. On the one hand, on the other hand, the army and the Communist Party elite remain “one hand”.
