    • Synopsis
    • Spain suffers the worst economic crisis in the last seventy years. Citizens are paralized by sadness and fear, everyone except a group of workers that have resisted change during decades. They are the last surviving representatives of a working class culture and lifestyle almost extinct in today's Europe. More than four thousand miners go on an indefinite strike against the historic cuts imposed by country's right-wing government. Daily protest to call government's attention begin: dozens of roadblocks, stay-downs, pitched battles in pit villages, rallies, demonstrations, “The Black March on Madrid” (five hundred kilometers walking). Protests are ignored by the goverment but attract the support of the “Women of the Coal”, neighbors and millions of workers in Spain, fuelling class mobilisations in a country battered and worn down by policies of public austerity. But nothing is as it used to be, nor even the surviving representatives of the last working class movement.
