As the “Black March”, organized by miners and supporters from the main Iberian mining areas (Asturias, Leon and Aragon) approaches the capital Madrid, new clashes are taking place in the Asturian mining pits of Lieres and Soton…
The miners’ march is expected to arrive in Madrid by July the 11th…
The Spanish state seems determined to hold to its guns and afford no concession whatsoever to the striking workers.
Neighbours and miners in the Leonese village of Cinhera (close to the southern border of the neighboring region of Asturias) forced to fight one day after the other the almost military occupation of the fascistic and pretty much hated Guardia Civil in riot gear.
Brutality is on the rampage, arrests, beatings, neighbours terrorised… Franco’s dictatorship never went away, it just changed form. Now they call it democracy but the portion of the Iberian population who’s beginning to realise this is bullshit increases by the day. The Spanish state and capitalists have all the reasons to fret about it.
Leon’s delegate of government has had the fucking nerve of accusing the miners of Cinhera of using their own families, wives, children and non miner neighbours as “human shields”, when what it is being seen in this brave and small locality is nothing but a moving example of solidarity and unity at its highest. Sheer mutual aid in practice in face of the bad times looming on the horizon.
However the long tradition among the Guardia Civil and other Spanish repressive forces of living in “Casas cuartel” (big compounds where them and their families are provided with free-rent or at least cheap flats) could not be also considered also a way of keeping hostages…
As it is customary for politicians and the media everything depends on who is calling the shots… and who’s actually taking them.

Night battles against the repressive forces broke out again last night. This time the local youth has made a timid attempt at joining the miners in the fight.
The “Black March” keeps approaching Madrid and is expected to arrive in the Kingdoms capital by July the 11th.
this is how the battle looks from the mountain slopes of Pola de Lena at night…
