Photo of the week


LabourStart photo of the week.Indian unions declared 9 August as 'Save India Day' and organized strikes and protests across the country in reaction to government policies including the COVID-19 crisis. The date chosen for this protest has symbolic value. On the same date in 1942, a mass civil disobedience movement - the Quit India movement - was launched, demanding the end to colonial rule.
