Burn baby burn!

Coal miners in Campomanes, northern Spain, striking against government spending cuts in the mining sector are barricading the highways with felled trees & burning tires. The government has arrayed the Spanish Civil Guard (federal military cops) in full riot gear against the strikers. The media doesn’t bother to identify what those cuts are but we can be sure wages, pensions, & safety protections on the job are among them. Our fullest solidarity with the miners!
