HOV Britain letter to Ambassador against killing of two workers in occupied Mitsubitshi factory

We publish a letter of the HOV Britain National Steering Committee to the Venezuelan Ambassador to the UK, Samuel Moncada, against the killing ofthe two workers in the occupied Mitsubitshi factory in Venezuela.

Dear Ambassador,

Wewould like to express our outrage at the killing of two workers by theAnzoategui Police in Venezuela. The workers were killed during anattempt to evict them from the Mitsubishi Motor Company plant whichthey had been occupying since January 22.

This was a brutal and unjustified killing of unarmedworkers who were only trying to defend their jobs and livelihoods andwho are part of the Bolivarian revolutionary movement. 

We demand that:

- there should be no more violence against theworkers of MMC or any other group of workers in struggle, and that alllegal action against them should be suspended. 

- that thereshould be a full enquiry to find out who gave the order to fire onunarmed workers and that those responsible be brought to justice.

- that the governor of Anzoategui Tarek William Saab and thenational government of President Hugo Chávez must make a publicstatement on this incident.

Long live the Bolivarian Revolution

Long live the workers' struggle
