Speaker group of the German coordination group of the IAC: At Daimler, OPEL, VW, Bosch, MAN, Conti, ... - the executive boards of the car companies and suppliers destroy jobs and close plants. The workforces form up to resist and take to the streets. "Our management has failed, now in the crisis they are shifting all the burdens on us, they must live up to their responsibility", such voices can be heard during the fighting.
