Indian court sentences 13 to life imprisonment in Maruti factory revolt

In July 2012, the owners (Maruti Suzuki, a subsidiary of Japanese automobile major Suzuki) of the Maruti Suzuki factory in Manesar mobilized the absolute ruler of violence to send her armed force of pigs to suppress the right of the workers to own his production, dignity and life. The revolt was triggered by an argument between a supervisor and a casual employee, who was abused over his low caste. Who had been at loggerheads with the management over wages and plans to set up a union at the workplace.

A court on Saturday sentenced 13 workers to life in jail for the murder of a senior manager in an outburst of deadly violence at a car plant in 2012, one of the country’s worst episodes of labour unrest. The court last week convicted a total of 31 workers, including 13 for murder, after hundreds of employees clashed with managers over wages and appointments at the Maruti Suzuki factory in Manesar. The hearing in Gurgaon, on the outskirts of New Delhi, jailed 13 workers for murdering Awanish Kumar Dev, whose charred body was found in the remains of a building.

The court sentenced four of the remaining 18 all of whom were found guilty of rioting, arson and damaging property to five years in jail.

which means they have another one or two months to serve. Rebecca John, a senior lawyer representing the workers

The rest were expected to walk free later Saturday with the court stating they had already served more than four years behind bars while awaiting the outcome of the case. John’s team plans to appeal the verdict.

If 13 people have been convicted for murder wrongly there will be a challenge to it. Rebecca John, a senior lawyer representing the workers

We salute these great revolutionary heroes enduring persecution, long stints in prison, men with soul of that beautiful Bakunin for those who would reject the state, globalization, false caste systems and subordination to authority. Namaste.

We can thus say that whoever does not organize himself/herself will turn into a harmless aggregation that will be assimilated to the alienation mechanisms of the existent sooner or later. They will lose the combative attributes that make them dangerous for the enemy and subsequently be deported from the field of antagonistic battle.

The opinions expressed here are our own personal views, so it should be clear that they promote a particular position on the issue. However it is not desired to have one position prevail over all the others; what matters is how the various different, yet complementary, points of view communicate and interact with each other. In the face of an enemy that’s very flexible as regards the use and multitude of means and forms of attack, the diversity of considerations and practices on the part of anarchists is self-evident. Whichever different perspectives cannot be promoted dogmatically but rather based on a rationale of multifaceted attack.
