Draw it like this – The reversal of privatization: by Sarah Rifky

We were just going to work. 

The only sound we hear is birdsong. 

We became witnesses, to this mass destruction. 

Pulling a rope that does not exist we get rid of problems. 

In February 2011, the workers of the Starch and Glucose Company occupied the factory in protest of its shutdown. The factory had been privatized eight years earlier, but under the pretext of renovating the factory, the owners started to destroy it.
