The International Solidarity Commission of the Industrial Workers of the World sends its revolutionary greetings and solidarity to all the workers of Cambodia as they struggle against oppression, murder, and the everyday violence of low wages and overwork.
We are outraged by the murder of protesters in the streets on Friday, January 3rd, and hope for a day when the murderers will be held accountable by the workers themselves.
We stand in solidarity with the workers demanding higher wages, and urge workers to do everything in their power to prevent factories from moving equipment and materials out of the country.

Justin Vitiello grew up in New York City and lived for many years in Philadelphia where he taught Italian at Temple University involving himself with various local anarchist activities. He was a published poet and spoke at least three languages fluently. Justin traveled extensively and lived in Italy, Spain and Algeria. He attended the Port Huron conference, organized with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. during the Poor People’s Campaign, established anti-mafia collectives with Sicilian anarchists, and devoted his life to working-class struggle. Justin was an IWW member for years, always made sure to pay his dues well in advance, and served on the IWW’s International Solidarity Commission with whom he traveled to Mexico, Haiti and Palestine. It was during the later two ISC delegations that I came to love and respect him.
