• tamil nadu, india– 30,000 demonstrate against nuclear power plant.
  • chicago, u.s.- 30,000 teachers strike against ridiculous education “reforms”, salary cuts and their inability to strike.
  • west bank, palestine– 24,000 public transit workers strike along with the people against price increases, poor salaries and police repression.
  • marikana, south africa– 42,000 miners strike against unlivable wages.

beautiful beautiful resistance.

*interesting side note: news articles for most of these acts of resistance had the theme of workers “turning violent”. i would think the real violence is the slow death of poisoning bodies, starving people and making moments of happiness purely random and uncertain.
