From Manhattan to Manesar: Naeem Moahaiemen

October 29, 2011

Greetings to the Workers of Manesar from Occupied Wall Street (Photograph by Naeem Moahaiemen)

A few days ago, in a post on the rally in solidarity with the (then) striking Maruti Suzuki, Suzuki Powertrain and Suzuki Motorcycles Factory workers in Manesar, Gugaon in Haryana, we had reported a worker saying:

when we went home finally after a long stint occupying the factory, we saw how fast the world is changing on television, there are hundreds and thousands of people like us, working people, young people, out on the streets, occupying so many cities, New York, London, Rome…, we realized that we are not alone…that makes us feel very happy…that is why you see so many of us smiling here…we are angry, but we are not beaten, we are out here, and we will not give in now easily…the whole world is watching the whole world.

Today, we are happy to report on Kafila, that just as Maruti Suzuki workers were watching the world, the world, or at least the part of the world assembled on the site of the Wall Street Occupation in Manhattan, New York City, was also watching them, and standing by them.

Here are two cell phone photographs, (see above and below) taken recently by Naeem Moahaiemen, sent to us as photo guest posts from New York city, of an expression of solidarity, on Occupied Wall Street, with the workers of Maruti-Suzuki factories in Manesar. See here for more photographs by Naeem Moahaiemen of the Wall Street Occupation.

The whole world is watching the whole world change, everyday !
