14 November: Mass strikes and protests in over 20 countries

A glimpse of the immense power of the working class if action is built and coordinated across borders

On November 14th, millions of workers across Europe went on strike and participated in mass protests in the first internationally-coordinated strike action in Europe against austerity since the economic crisis began.

Protests and strikes took place in over 20 different countries in response to the call by the European Trade Union Confederation - ETUC.

In Spain and Portugal in particular, where mass general strikes were taking place, the protests were enormous.

A common feature of the demonstrations in Italy, Spain and Portugal was the unprecedented level of state repression.

Socialistworld.net has published short reports from CWI activists who participated in these mass protests.

Further analysis and comments on the significance of November 14 and what will flow from it will be carried on the CWI's website shortly.
