Kazakhstan: Socialist Movement and Zhanartu denounce the detention of striking oil workers

With a joint statement, the Socialist Movement of Kazakhstan and Kazakhstan's Workers Union (Zhanartu) strongly denounce the detention of two oil workers who were on hunger strike. 

On January 20th, the organizers of the hunger strike among oil industry workers in Kazakhstan, the Chairman of the Union «Oil Construction Company» Amin Yeleusinov and public labour inspectors Nurbek Kushakbaev were arrested being accused of embezzlement of trade Union funds. Accusations then followed as “calling of illegal strikes”. The custody will last 2 months and workers say they have already arrived to Astana.
