ENL DOCKWORKERS AND DANGOTE TRUCK OFFICERS CONTINUE THE STRUGGLE FOR COMPENSATION

By Chinedu Bosah, Publicity Secretary, CDWR

Dockworkers of ENL Consortium and Truck Officers of Dangote Cement Plc continue the struggle for compensation after both managements violated working conditions and agreements reached with workers. ENL violated the condition of service reached with the dockworkers in May 2008 to pay time wage of N33, 000 and has so far owed many workers 8 years' salary. Workers began protest in March 2016 after it became obvious that ENL was not interested in paying the affected dockworkers their accumulated time-wage salary.

2018 International Women's Day

We Urgently Need a Mass Movement to fight Gender Discrimination, Rape, Sexism, Exploitation and Women's Oppression

We women in Nigeria live in utter privation. We still face oppression of various kinds both at home, work, schools and in society. All these cannot be disconnected from the capitalist system - a system that reinforces patriarchy and creates inequality and discrimination. It is a system that survives mainly by oppressing and exploiting the vast majority, including women, to further enrich the tiny minority.

The Democratic Socialist Movement (DSM), CWI Nigeria, calls for active campaigns led by the labour movement and students' movement against sexism, rape, unequal pay and all cases of women's oppression in workplaces, communities and campuses.

CHINA: Xi Jinping Extends His Rule

By chinaworker.info reporters

The news from Beijing is historic nothing less than a political earthquake with repercussions around the world. At its March 2018 "parliamentary session" the National People's Congress, NPC, removed the two-term limit for the presidency and vice presidency. This confirms what was widely expected; that Xi Jinping plans to extend his rule after his current second term finishes in 2023.

SOUTHERN CAMEROON CRISIS: Halt the Repression, Release all Political Prisoners

For the right of Southern Cameroonians to Self-Determination linked with a movement to overthrow Dictatorship and Capitalism

By Dimeji Macaulay

The Southern Cameroon crisis has escalated in the last few months since October 1, 2017 when the leadership of the Southern Cameroon separatist group declared independence from Cameroon. They called the new state the Republic of Ambazonia. The declaration has led to further intensification of repression. Activists estimate that about 100 people have been killed and 1, 000 are in detention.

REPEAL LAGOS STATE LAND USE CHARGE LAW 2018

REDUCTION IS A DECEIT

Tax the Rich, Not the Poor

The Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) Lagos State Chapter condemns the new land use charge recently introduced by the Lagos state government and calls for the total repeal of this obnoxious law. We are not swayed by the purported reduction of the charges because it is a well-worn tactic to deceive the masses to believing that the government has shifted ground while, in reality, it has just settled for the originally intended figures. The masses have experienced similar tactics many times with different hikes in fuel price.

LASU: No to Harassment of Students by Campus Marshals for Indecent Dressing

For a Students Congress Now!

By IBS Duroorike Coordinator, ERC LASU

It is no news that Lagos State University (LASU) is one of the most militarized campuses anywhere in Nigeria with fully armed Campus marshals patrolling round the campus, extorting and harassing students with impunity under the pretext of enforcing a so-called dress code which is actually a crude violation of the fundamental rights of students. This harassment has become so widespread and there is now palpable anger on campus among students.

REJECT PLANS TO HIKE FEES IN AAUA

Prepare for a Fightback

By Dammy Owot, Coordinator, ERC Ondo State Chapter

Comment made by the All Progressive Congress (APC) Governor Akeredolu of Ondo State that tuition fees being paid by students in the state-owned tertiary institutions is not enough to buy a pair of shoes has led to outrage on social media. This comment made this month at the inauguration of governing boards of the public tertiary institutions reinforces a similar call for review of tuition fee by the Governor in December 2017 at the convocation of the Adekunle Ajasin University Akungba-Akoko (AAUA).
