Photo gallery from the 1969 Cordobazo, which saw students and workers take part in a series of strikes, riots and demonstrations in a general uprising against the dictatorship of General Juan Carlos Onganía
Translated text from Proletarios Revolucionarios (“Revolutionary Proletarians”) from Ecuador, about the memory of the 15 November workers' uprising in Guayaquil in 1922, which was crushed by the state.
Hundreds of thousands of workers have taken part in a one-day strike, and clashes with police have broken out, after hundreds of coal miners died in Turkey's worst mining disaster, which was no "accident".
