The March 10th Workers' Meeting for the 2013 Spring Labour Offensive: a big success
On March 10th, 1300 militant workers successfully achieved their Workers' Meeting to fight for this year's spring labour offensive in all industries.
Amid the anti-proletarian economic offensives launched by the neo-fascist Abe government, or so-called 'Abe-nomics', Japanese workers' 2013 labour offensive is reaching its 'climax'.
Our comrade workers who made a big success of this meeting are now determined to create a militant upsurge of the spring labour offensive by overcoming the degenerate Rengo leadership's and JCP-led Zenroren bureaucrats' distortion of the offensive into a one for 'escaping from deflation'.
Militant workers rallied from various regions of the country make a firm resolution to strive for the upsurge of the 2013 labour offensive (March 10th, Tokyo) (pic above)
