WFTU statement on the new accident in India

At least 133 people lost their lives and 200 were wounded in a new accident that happened in India. The accident occurred in central India by a train derailment. One more time the working class paid for the lack of safety protective measures in public transport. The World Federation of Trade Unions demands investigation of the conditions of the accident and punishment of the responsible. Also, the WFTU demands the determination of high standard of safety measures in public transport and at all aspects of public life. Also we demand cheep and reliable public transport in the service of the working class and the poor population. We express our sincere condolences for the families and friends of the workers who lost their lives.
