CITU Opposes CAA, Seeks Solidarity for Jan 8 General Strike
The Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU) welcomes and greets all sections of the people for their countrywide spontaneous response to the call for protest mobilisations on December 19 against the infamous Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA). In a statement issued on December 20, it said that the CAA is an outrageous onslaught on the Indian constitution and the right to equality irrespective of religion, caste and creed as enshrined in the constitution.
CITU condemned police atrocities in many parts of the country against the peaceful protest demonstrations and rallies.
The united platform of Central Trade Unions and Federations, in a joint statement issued on December 17, denounced the anti-constitutional Citizenship (Amendment) Act and its divisive and disruptionist intent; demanded to repeal this infamous Act and called upon the working class to voice their protest.
The CITU calls upon people to unitedly build strong opposition to CAA and follow it up with the battle cry of general strike on January 8 with determination to defeat the nefarious game-plan of the government and to defend the rights and livelihood of the workers and the people, the country's constitution, national economy and its self reliance.
