IUF Korean affiliates at Coca-Cola mobilize to defend threatened Hong Kong union leaders

IUF affiliates have responded quickly to threats by the Hong Kong government to prosecute independent trade union leaders for their active role in the democracy movement. On January 17, Hong Kong Confederation of Trade Unions general secretary Lee Cheuk-yan was questioned by the police, accused of inciting, convening and participating in unauthorized assemblies (criminal charges with potentially severe sentences) and told he could be prosecuted at any time. Mung Siu-tat, the union's chief executive, will be formally questioned on January 22.
