> Pictures from the strike http://www.sac.se/fed/transport/strejk/strejkbilder030318.html
Last tuesday railway workers in several European countries went on strike
against privatisation. In Stockholm syndicalists struck at the subway, the
commuter trains and regular train traffic. The employee organisation ALMEGA
tried to sue SAC in front of the the labour market court so as to make the
24 hour strike illegal, a plan which failed.

Commuters were affected by the strike during morning and noon, when most
of the syndicalists had their shift. During the afternoon many of the
trains on the green line subway were cancelled.

- We have spread information about the right to neutrality [to workers
in the LO union] and I think most of our colleagues are going to stick
to it. SEKO [LO union] are against deregulation, it's a question they work
with, Jone Källsäter from the Transport Workers Syndicate commented to
SAC:s weekly Arbetaren.

Even though only traffic in Stockholm was affected, the direct action
was supported elsewhere in the country. In the cities of Malmö and
Uppsala activists from the Syndicalist Youth Federation informed
both commuters and train personel about the european-wide strike by
giving out thousands of fliers.
