In Spain, a 3-day strike by Amazon workers continues despite repression by Spanish police, who attacked striking workers Tuesday and arrested at least two people. The attack in Spain came as thousands of Amazon workers in Germany and Poland also went on strike. This is Spanish union leader Douglas Harper, speaking about the international strike action.

Douglas Harper: “The local management, which is handling the negotiations here, have told us that management at headquarters in the United States have placed a glass ceiling which they cannot break, so we hope that with these mobilizations the glass ceiling expands and comes closer to what we are demanding.”
