The demands of the strike are what they are, namely reactionary. I'm sure it is true that job insecurity and aggressive subcontracting in the industry has fuelled the feeling, but the strike cannot win progress on those issues unless it develops demands on those issues, aimed against the bosses and the government, rather than demands aimed against foreign workers.

Commentators from afar saying that they know what the strikers "really mean" won't change the demands on the strikers' placards and the strikers' website. Only convincing workers on the issues will do that.
