Prato, Texprint workers beaten by the company’s top management: a worker hit with a brick. Syndicate: “Three ended up in hospital”

Fists in the face e mattonate ahead. This is probably not the line of defense that the lawyers have advised the management of Texprint to convince the Prefect to remove theanti-mafia interdict which has recently been confirmed to the detriment of the textile printing company of Meadow. Yet, as can be seen from the images taken by employees who for six months have been denouncing conditions of exploitation, this is precisely the way in which this afternoon Zhang “Valerio” Sang Yu, already under investigation for involvement in “a plurality of crimes with aggravating circumstance of belonging to a mafia-type association” and another 15 company employees attempted to put an end to the protest that has been going on unabated for six months.

“They took advantage of a moment when we left the garrison with other workers to join the strike in progress in another company in the textile district – he explains Luca Toscano of SiCobas that from the beginning follows the dispute – there were only three workers who were blocking the entry of a truck when they were attacked ”. Despite the attempts to block, in practice the production of Texprint has never stopped despite the garrison and protests, but the tension is always higher.

In recent days the Region had invited the company to reopen dialogue with workers but for now the appeal seems to have fallen on deaf ears. While the three workers reached the hospital to treat their wounds, Texprint employees headed by Zhang “Valerio” Sang Yu took care to dismantle, piece by piece, the garrison and the banners in front of the gates. The garrison resumed when the other workers returned, joined by a large group of solidarity from other companies in the textile district of Prato.
