A video of workers in the largest iPhone factory… protests and a cry of anger

One of the live-streamed videos shows dozens of workers demonstrating at night, chanting “Let’s defend our rights” in front of lines of policemen.

Social media posts stated that they were protesting unspecified breaches of their employment contracts.

This came after the withdrawal of thousands of employees last month due to complaints about the lack of means of protection against the emerging corona virus, and the insufficient assistance provided to people who contracted the disease.

Foxconn decided to impose a stone on the site and the workers inside, but hundreds of them then fled the site on foot.

The hashtag “Foxconn unrest” was blocked on Chinese social media, but some comments about the protests were still posted.

Foxconn is a huge conglomerate that assembles electronic products for many international brands and is the main contractor for the Apple Group.

In recent months, the Taiwanese company has faced an increase in the number of Covid-19 infections at its huge site in Zhengzhou, which employs more than 200,000 people who are generally accommodated on site.

The Taiwanese group is the largest private sector employer in China, employing more than 1 million people in about 30 factories and research institutes across the country.
