#GlobalMayDay2021 in Düsseldorf: Solidarity with Arrested Rider in China

Comrades of the Free Workers’ Union (FAU) Düsseldorf expressed their support for the arrested rider Meng Zhu who organized many fellow workers.

On February 25 “Mengzhu,” a well-known food delivery worker activist, was detained by Beijing police in a raid on the group apartment where he lives with other delivery workers. Four of them were also detained.

While two workers were released after questioning at the police station, Mengzhu—whose real name is Chen Guojiang—and two of his close friends are still detained. He has been charged with “picking quarrels and provoking trouble,” a catch-all category often used against activists in China.
