Workers and The Struggle Against Contract Labor In India
Screening of Many Straws Make A Nest (50 min.) India.
This documentary is about the labor struggles in Delhi’s new industrial zones where 4.5 million workers toil mostly recruited from rural areas. There will also be a report by engineer Raj Sahi on the Indian Institute of Technology in Kanpur on the struggle of the temporary contract workers at the University. They have been organizing for over ten years for their labor and democratic rights against extreme exploitation at this highly rated university. This issue is faced as well by millions of working people in the US.
