'Disruption is worsening as more drivers than expected refuse to cross picket lines. Merseyrail had hoped to run almost half its services, but "many" drivers took the decision not to work today. The company said it was running around 20% of services, far fewer than previously advertised. Trains were still running on most routes, every half an hour, but they were not stopping at every station.'
"The anniversary of the tragic murder of indigenous rights defender Berta Cáceres was commemorated last week. The highly-regarded, awarded-winning human rights activist from Honduras was working to defend the rights of the Lenca people, who are opposed to the hydroelectric project being developed by the Honduran company DESA (financed by FMO and Finnfund), given the negative impact it would have on their way of life and the failure to respect their right to consultation."
"Workers at Egypt’s Misr Spinning and Weaving Company were forced to end a two day strike on 8 February, due to the arrest of five female workers and threats not only to increase the number of arrests, but also to fire striking workers. Around 3,000 textile workers at the el-Ghazl factory, which is located in the Egyptian industrial city of el-Mahalla el-Kubra, went on strike to demand the payment of benefits."
