Total success of the general strike in the coal districts of Spain

The general strike called for yesterday in the coal districts of Spain was a total success. As a matter of course, as the miners say: if mining disappears, the districts die out. 

Besides the walk out, roads were cut again, however this time police avoided any confrontation. 

Three miners remain inside a mine (200th day already) as a method of protest. 

In the evening 50,000 people marched through Langreo, capital of the coal region of Asturias.

Update: while the police remained calm for a change, the Spanish army made drills in the area. As Sare Antifaxista asks: is there still anyone who believes in coincidences? In 1934 and 1937 the Spanish Army quelled revolutionary attempts in that area precisely.
