Spain: Historic student general strike

A magnificent general strike of students throughout the Spanish state took place on 26 October, called by the Sindicato de Estudiantes (SE).

Nearly two million students from schools throughout the state took part.

The CWI fully backed this strike and organised active solidarity and support in over 20 countries worldwide.

Claire Laker-Mansfield from Socialist Students in England and Wales spoke at the 60,000-strong demonstration in Madrid (video below).
