The two members appeared on Labornet TV ahead of their actions, along with WAKATSUKI Tadao, president of All Toyota Union, and talked about how No. 1 automaker of the world is also No. 1 in violating human rights and bullying its workers across the world. While Wakatsuki talked about how his members have been fighting against Toyota and its subsidiaries to respect workers rights, the two of TMPCWA members revealed violent oppression of their members by Toyota and difficulties they face in surviving after the company unfairly dismissed 237 union members.
