Emeute à Dujiangyan 都江堰 (Sichuan 花椒) après la mort de deux ouvriers – 11 octobre 2010

Workers’ Deaths Lead to Riot



Protesters in southern China demand justice from authorities after the deaths of two fellow workers.

Two migrant construction workers died after being severely beaten by their employers over wage issues in southwest China’s Dujiangyan city in Sichuan province, sparking mass riots.

Some 1,000 policemen were deployed to keep several thousand protesters at bay following the incident on Oct. 11 evening, eyewitnesses and reports said.

According to a Chinese Internet message board posting, some 3,000 people took part in the demonstrations and blocked a key road in the city. A dozen of them have been arrested for questioning as the mob smashed police cars to vent their anger.

A day later, hundreds of protesters maintained their demand for justice from the police, joined by curious onlookers.

The two killed were among workers who demanded unpaid wages from their local employers, resulting in a fight and the duo severely beaten.

They are believed to have died at the hospital.

Protesting conditions

In recent months, a series of suicides and strikes hit factories in southern China as workers protested against labor conditions.

Most bosses of factories where the incidents occurred responded by increasing salaries and improving working conditions.

Taiwan-invested Foxconn, which assembles Apple’s iPhone, said in June it had signed an agreement with two property management companies to take over the running of on-site housing for 450,000 of its migrant workers.

Foxconn also announced salary increases in June after 11 Chinese employees apparently committed suicide by jumping from buildings this year, including 10 in Shenzhen.

Critics have blamed inhuman working conditions at the plant for the suicides, as China faces a wave of industrial action at foreign-invested companies over pay and working conditions.

Some observers expect more strikes as reports of the better working conditions spread in southern China.

Deadly protest

October 13 2010]

Police in southwest China’s Dujiangyan dispersed nearly 1,000 people who blocked a highway Tuesday after a wage dispute left one person dead and another wounded.

Around 300 migrant workers gathered early Tuesday to protest at a highway exit leading to Dujiangyan, Sichuan Province.

The workers said that Lei Yong and Liao Xinglong were beaten by five people from the Jiaxun Labor Service Company when they tried to claim unpaid wages Monday.

Lei later died in hospital. Shortly after Lei’s death, hundreds of his co-workers blocked the highway in protest.

They dispersed at around 3:30 am Tuesday, after two of the five suspects were detained by police, but protested again a few hours later.

Police are still searching for the three other suspects.

Workers blockade road in China after one dies in wage dispute


Beijing, Oct 12 (PTI) In a rare display of anger, hundreds of migrant workers in a southwest Chinese city today blocked a highway, protesting a brutal assault by the staff of a private company in a wage-dispute that resulted in the death of one of their co-workers.

Police in southwest China »s Dujiangyan city dispersed nearly 1,000 people who blocked a highway after a wage dispute left one person dead and another wounded, state-run Xinhua reported.

Around 300 migrant workers gathered early today to protest at a highway exit leading to Dujiangyan, capital of Sichuan Province, police in Chengdu said.

The protesting workers carried funeral wreaths and banners calling for justice for the two victims.

Some 700 onlookers also joined the crowd of workers and then clashed with the police.

More than 1,000 police officers were dispatched to the scene to keep order.

Lei Yong and Liao Xinglong — two construction workers went to their employer – Jiaxun Labor Service Company – at around 5 p m yesterday to claim their unpaid wages.

A fight then ensued and Lei and Liao were severely beaten by the company staff.

While Lei died in the hospital last evening, Liao is in the hospital in stable condition, the report said.

Shortly after Lei »s death, hundreds of his co-workers blocked Erhuan Road in Dujiangyan City.

The furious workers clashed with police and toppled a police vehicle.

They dispersed after two of the five suspects were detained by police, but later resumed their blockade with more people, a few hours later.

The crowd, however, dispersed and traffic resumed at around noon after Li Kunxue, chief of the Chengdu Public Security Bureau, promised protesters that the criminals would be punished according to law and that unpaid wages would be paid.

Search is on for the other three suspects, it said.

Such protests are rare in China where workers generally fear a crackdown.

China has witnessed labour unrest in recent months with workers in several plants, specially in top auto companies like Honda and Toyota going on spontaneous strikes demanding higher wages.

To stem the spread of the unrest, the government increased minimum wages while several private companies have worked out wage agreements registering a sharp increase in labour costs.

Dispersan a unas mil personas tras una protesta salarial en China



Una disputa salarial en una ciudad del suroeste se saldó con un muerto y un herido. Los compañeros de las víctimas protestaron cortando una carretera y se enfrentaron a las fuerzas de seguridad.

(SPANISH.CHINA.ORG.CN) – La policía de la ciudad de Dujiangyan, en el suroeste de China, dispersó a unas mil personas que bloquearon una carretera ayer luego de que una disputa salarial dejara a una persona muerta y a otra herida.

Unos 300 trabajadores inmigrantes se congregaron en las primeras horas de ayer martes para protestar en la salida de una carretera que conduce a Dujiangyan, a una hora de distancia en auto de Chengdu, capital de la provincia de Sichuan, dijo la policía de esta ciudad.

Los manifestantes llevaban coronas fúnebres y pancartas en las que pedían justicia para sus dos compañeros. Cerca de 700 peatones se unieron a la multitud que se enfrentó a la policía.

Más de 1,000 oficiales de policía fueron enviados al sitio para mantener el orden.

Lei Yong y Liao Xinglong eran dos de un total de ocho albañiles que acudieron con su patrón, la Compañía de Servicios Laborales Jiaxun, alrededor de las 17:00 horas del lunes para reclamar el pago de salarios retrasados. Posteriormente, se registró una riña.

Lei y Liao fueron golpeados severamente por el personal de la compañía. Lei murió en un hospital en lunes en la noche, mientras que Liao está hospitalizado en condición estable.

Poco después de la muerte de Lei, cientos de sus compañeros de trabajo bloquearon la carretera de circunvalación de la ciudad de Dujiangyan. Los trabajadores furiosos se enfrentaron a la policía y destruyeron un vehículo de las fuerzas del orden.

Los manifestantes se disperaron alrededor de las 3:30 horas de hoy, 30 minutos después de que dos de los cinco sospechosos fueran detenidos por la policía.

Sin embargo, los manifestantes acudieron en compañía de más gente unas horas después a la salida de la carretera.

La multitud fue dispersada y el tránsito se reanudó alrededor de las 11:30 horas, luego de que Li Kunxue, jefe del Buró de Seguridad Pública de Chengdu, prometiera a los manifestantes que los criminales serían castigados de acuerdo con la ley y que se pagarían los salarios pendientes.

La policía sigue buscando a los otros tres sospechosos.
