Kazakhstan: workers solidarity action
On 28 September a protest took place outside the London office of Kaz Minerals plc, demanding action to alleviate the suffering of that company's workers and its victimisation of activists.
A representative of the workers, Berik Zhagiparov is in London as a guest of the National Shop Stewards Network (NSSN - www.shopstewards.net) and individual unions. Berik is drawing attention to the fact that every month, on average, two workers are being killed working for Kaz Minerals in Zhezkazgan.
Workers' wages have also been reduced, meaning they can't support their families. Workers who speak out about their wages and conditions have been illegally sacked.
