Hong Kong’s port workers have been on strike for three weeks. Without a union strike fund, workers have been surviving on their own fundraising efforts and that of their many supporters in Hong Kong. We want to express solidarity and support the brave Hong Kong dock workers in their fight against Li Kasheng and Hutchinson Whampoa by contributing to their strike fund. The strike fund is being collected by the Hong Kong Confederation of Trade Unions (HKCTU).
There are a few ways to contribute to the strike fund:
1) Online contributions
Please contribute to the wepay account set up by the IWW International Solidarity Commission HERE
2) Bank transfer directly to Hong Kong
You could organize a fundraiser locally to pool money or individually donate by wiring money directly to the HKCTU using their bank information. A wiring fee may be included.
