CSAN Solidarity Action With Levi’s Worker Strike

On December 23rd, members of the Class Struggle Action Network spent the afternoon distributing over 200 leaflets at two Levi’s stores in Portland and Troutdale, Oregon, while holding a banner which read “Levi’s, Stop Attacks on Striking Ozak Textile Workers in Turkey”. While distributing the leaflets, we appealed to the class solidarity of workers in the stores and customers. We encouraged them respect the strike of fellow Turkish workers and not shop at Levi’s until the conclusion of the strike. In a small but significant act of international solidarity, over a dozen workers chose to respect the picket lines of their fellow workers in Turkey and refused to shop at Levi’s that day. Throughout the day many good conversations were had with workers about the strike and more committed to supporting the struggle in the future.
