Police is preventing the strikers to inform the company's other workers about it
This Saturday they attacked violently against the strikers while CNT*
requests explanations to the Government's delegation. The strike of
Mercadona becomes from today in indefinite.
Until forty military Policemen urged by the government they guard the doors of
Mercadona daily for not allowing the workers of the strike to inform. The policemen,
paid by the government, are inside and outside of the logistical center with orders
of not allowing to inform the workers in strike to the employees. This Saturday they

constitution and in the Statute of the Workers, for what will have to
respond of a side or another for these practices.”

Reasons of the strike

Measures of security, three union delegates’ readmission, one of them
