Worker rights activists in Southern China are being rounded up and detained in a wave of arrests. These legitimate activists have been representing lower wage workers in their struggles for better working conditions and higher wages. In the absence of genuine labor unions, workers are unable to assert their rights without recourse to the worker rights centers these activists have maintained.

Hong Kong labor activists are reporting on this crisis daily at https://www.facebook.com/redballoonsolidarity/.
