See also here for videos of the violent police repression against the miners in Madrid, which ended with a dozen people injured and two arrested.

Coal miners are on permanent strike in protest against the budgetary cuts affecting their sector, which is largely dependent on public subsidies. The state has cut between 40% and 100% of diverse aids, effectively sentencing the sector to death and workers to unemployment. (Source: Público[es]).
