Reminiscent of the 19th Century Industrial Revolution.

Good news: The mistreated migrant workers of the U.A.E. went on strike.

Bad News: They got violent and so will all be deported back to their countries of origin.

If only they hadn't given the government grounds to deport them... I would have liked to have seen how they would have been dealt with now that the world is watching; especially in light of all the exposure the treatment of migrant workers there has been given. It's about damn time the world knew, but this wasn't so much a step forward as a shuffle to the side. If only the next herd of laborers threatened to go on peaceful strike if they get the same shit... Otherwise they're just South Asian Uncle Toms and scabs.

Hooray for the birth of the moment when a people decide "We're NOT GONNA TAKE IT"!! Sigh. Back to Twisted Sister again...

I read somewhere that the UAE is trying to blame the strikes on some ties to an Indian labour union. I guess Mossad couldn't be pinned for this one. ;-)
