Basque Country: workers evicted from their company

In a case that evidences the extreme injustice and irrationality of the bourgeois legal system, the workers of Troquenor (Sondika, near Bilbao) were yesterday evicted from the grounds of their manufacture, which was a perfectly viable company, producing metallurgic products in high demand. 

The legal pretext is that Troquenor owes € 250,000 to the owner of the industrial pavilion, who in turn owes millions to the public treasury in terms of taxes (€ 10.6 million) and social security (€ 7 million) but nobody is prosecuting him. 

The workers, who have not even yet formally laid out, have so far no right to even unemployment benefits. 

Therefore they have been entrenched for weeks in their workplace in demand of a solution that allows Troquenor to continue producing and generating salaries. 

However yesterday the court executed the embargo order with heavy presence of police forces, as well as one of the owners of the pavilion, Jatsu Giménez Bretón.
