數碼農夫也維權 –中國IT工作員反抗996

文:劉陽

我們現在有了團體了,全國工人們有了聯絡了,我們從此以後是再也不能忍受了。我們做工的時間太長了,我們再也不能為著資本家——我們的敵人——的利益來累死,我們寧可奮鬥而死……

                                    ——《第一次全國勞動大會宣言》,1922

 

每日晝間勞動時間不得超過八小時,夜工不得超過六小時,每星期應予以連續二十四小時的休息。

                ——《中國共產黨中國勞動組合書記部勞動法大綱》第五條,1922

 

公私企業目前一般應實行八小時至十小時的工作制,特殊情況得斟酌辦理。

                      ——《中國人民政治協商會議共同綱領》第三十二條,1949

佳士事件引發新舊毛派大論爭

文:錢本立

編者按:大陸佳士工人抗爭及學生的聲援,不只引發大逮捕,而且在毛派之中引起老輩與青年之間的論爭。老輩毛派的主要代表是《紅色中國網》,之前稱爲《工人研究網》(被封)。青年毛派則主要是以學生爲主的《佳士工人聲援團》。這場爭論不只遠未結束,而且除卻意氣之爭部分,也有涉及對大陸形勢估計以及反對派的出路問題,值得社運人士留意。

在中國,毛派給大眾的印象往往是民族主義、個人崇拜、支持中共、懷念文革等等。但其實毛派並非鐵板一塊,其中有些人就對現政權頗為不滿——他們認為中共已被資本家控制,拋棄了馬克思主義和毛澤東思想;要想解決中國目前的種種問題,必須要有一場無產階級革命。 Continue reading 佳士事件引發新舊毛派大論爭

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.
