Video report on the 19-20 October General Strike

Watch this great report from the ground on the successful two-day strike of 19 and 20 October. This was also the biggest demonstration in Greece since 1974 with more than 250,000 demonstrators. It contributed perhaps the most in forcing unpopular Papandreou to resign, but it cost the labour movement one dead demonstrator killed in a clash with a group infiltrated by secret police.
