China - workers of LENOVO in struggle

Chinese IBM workers erupt in protests over layoffs, Lenovo deal
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. — Thousands of IBM workers in China – some carrying banners describing IBM as a “Sweat Shop” and “We are not merchandise” and many wearing blue lab coats – launched protests Monday that continued Tuesday in reaction to layoffs and the sale of IBM’s low-end server business to Lenovo. Unlike at the Research Triangle Park complex where layoffs spark little if any public protest, including layoffs that started last week, the IBM facility in Shenzhen City was blocked with hundreds of protesters gathered at the entrance.
