In India, hundreds of thousands of workers have gone on strike to protest Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s neoliberal economic policies. A two-day shutdown began Monday, called on by dozens of labor unions from the private and public sectors. Government workers, coal and copper miners, steel, oil and health workers are among those who’ve joined the strike as anger mounts over mass unemployment, rising food and fuel prices, worsening poverty and lack of access to healthcare and education.
