General strike imminent

Toxo explained at the
doors of Congress, the unions will gather hundreds of thousands of signatures
before the end of March to amend the labour reform approved by Parliament.

the disappearance of the aid of the 426 euros, in a situation like the present,
with increasing unemployment and "more than 400,000 homeless "who do
not have any income and there is" more than a million people "without

place in the run up to proposed general strikes on the 15th and 18th
