  • Spain: National demonstration on the 10th of December

    After two days of fighting against the extension of waiting lists, in January and May of this year, with varying success rates depending on the territories, the State Coordination of the Mareas Blancas takes the initiative to launch a major demonstration on December 10!

As explained by Terrassa workers: when a local initiative is already in place, workers are actively involved and can therefore speak at staff meetings, works councils and trade union sections.
