This is a peaceful protest ... the government must listen to us.

We will not let the government implement privatization. The moment a decision is announced we will go on strike. No one will come to work from tomorrow.

We will continue to agitate despite the suppression.

The strike is a complete success.

We were expressing our displeasure against the government policies peacefully when the police assaulted us. Several of us, including our women comrades, have been injured.

Yesterday, we made a temporary road, now the plane has to be lifted using a trolley, and of course it is not as easy as towing away a truck.

We're going to intensify our agitation until the government relents. It is the question of the lives of thousands of airport employees and their families.

Yes, we have started the strike. More than 90 % of the total employees of Mumbai [airport] are participating in the strike.
