On 24 and 25 Nov 2015, workers assembled during General Strike at Nusantara Bonded Zone, in Cakung, East Jakarta, Indonesia. The strike has disrupted the operation of the zone, known as one of the workplaces that are most exploitative with slave-like working condition. 


Nusantara Bonded Zone, established in 1986, is the oldest Indonesia’s Export Processing Zone (EPZ). EPZs, historically often labelled Free Trade Zones (FTZs), and more recently, Special Economic Zones (SEZs), have been and continue to be one of the most striking phenomena in the global capitalist system.
