The World Federation of Trade Unions representing 92 million workers in 126 countries expresses its deep sorrow to the Indian people and the families of the more than 52 flood victims. We consider unacceptable the fact that in the 21st century ordinary people losing their lives from the rainfall, the earthquakes and all kinds of physical disasters.
Those who lose their life in such circumstances are the poorest, workers, unemployed, poor farmers. This picture shows that the cause is the capitalist exploitation and the victims died unjustly. We demand from the government of India to take urgent measures to relieve the people.
