By Solidaridad Obrera

The demonstration started at 8 pm and went from Atocha to Plaza Jacinto
Benavente behind a banner which encouraged the need to continue the struggle
after the 20th June General Strike and signed by the syndical organisations
CNT, CGT, Solidaridad Obrera and Coordinadora Sindical de Madrid. Following
this banner came the CGT with a banner affirming that the struggle continues
and lots of red and black flags. After that, the Coordinadora Sindical de
Madrid, then a banner from the EMT Plataforma Sindical (bus drivers)
demanding a 35 hour week, then the CNT group and Solidaridaridad Obrera
mixed in with lots of red and black flags and banners pointing out the need
for a General Strike, and finally the castillian group with their purple

Around 2000 workers chanted working class slogans without pause during the
demonstration, as well as paying tribute to the lawyers assassinated by
fascists in 1977, as is customary in the workers demonstrations when passing
by the headquarters of these labour lawyers office in Anton Martin.

Once in Plaza Jacinto Benavente, representatives of the different syndical
organisations (Rodrigo for CNT, Eladio for CGT, Cordoba for the Coordinadora
Sindical de Madrid and Manuel for Solidaridad Obrera) gave speeches calling
for the need to continue the joint struggle, demanding that we confront the
reactionary state government, the bosses associations and the syndical
collaboration of CCOO and UGT, which was especially criticised during the
demonstration, due to their negotations with the government.

At 9.30 pm the demonstration finished, after announcing new mobilisations
that are being prepared.
