¡Huelga General J20!

General Strike in Spain 20th June 2002

On 20th June 2002 Spain erupted in a general strike against the neo-liberal policies of Aznar. 84% of the workforce struck. Strikers joined demonstrators against capitalist globalisation in Seville to protest at the EU summit.

Immediately before the summit the fourth meeting of the anti-capitalist left took place. Hosted by Espacio Alternativo the meeting discussed globalisation, the EU and agreed a statement. This will appear on this site soon.

We present below pictures from the strike
