Barcelona: Huelgistas de Movistar, 27 May 2015

Workers from Telefónica Movistar are on strike, and have been for quite some time (since 7th April, to be precise).

In May they occupied a Telefónica Movistar building - the Mobile World Center - on Barcelona's main square, Plaza Catalunya. The occupation is over now, but they were in there for at least a week and a half. The company has now agreed to talk to the workers.

It was a vast improvement on what was in there before, and as you can see from the video, people had a mighty fine time.
