According to reports, three workers were forcibly removed by police during a strike at a textile plant in Ninghai county, Zhejiang province.

The three workers, two men in their 40s and a woman, were apprehended during a demonstration by several hundred workers who were picketing the plant in the second week of their strike against low pay at the textile plant.

According to a report, one witness reported that "We'd been waiting for a week for the management to respond to our demands; instead, about 100 police officers arrived by car and grabbed three of the workers."

The witness also alleged that the police used violence to smash the participants cameras

The whereabouts of the three workers are unknown and the workers were continuing their protests in front of the local county government offices. It is believed that the authorities have already classified the protests as "illegal."

Many hundreds of labour activists and others have been detained by police during the escalating number of labour related protests that have been occurring throughout China in recent years. Scores of them remain in detention.
