Tea Workers Go on Strike

From Reuters

About 150,000 tea workers in central Sri Lanka went on strike Tuesday to protest the shooting of a co-worker by police last week, union officials said. Officials of the Ceylon Workers Congress, which called the strike, said the shooting of the worker, who was wounded in one leg, was unwarranted and provoked panic among workers.
