The 2 day general strike called by 11 trade unions began Wednesday and has had an effect in several estates of the nation. 

Commuters in the city faced hardships as a section of auto-rickshaws and taxis remained off the road in support of the two-day nationwide strike. 

Office-goers suffered the most as most auto-rickshaw and taxi drivers either refused or overcharged. Passengers at major railway stations and bus stands remained stranded or had to shell out more cash to reach their destinations. 

Five major auto-rickshaw and taxi unions have announced that they will join the strike to demand a hike in auto and taxi fares. 

Although Metro services were not affected by the strike, bus services were partially hit by the strike as a number of bus unions, including a section of Delhi Transport Corporation employees, have also extended support to the strike. 

Long queues were seen at Metro stations and bus stands as they remained the only viable option for people to commute. 

Normal banking operations were hit as employees of public sector banks went on a two-day strike in response to a call given by central trade unions to press for wage hike in the backdrop of rising inflation. 

Apprehending disruption in their normal banking operations, many banks had already informed their customers about the proposed strike. 

The bank strike is part of a general strike call given by 11 central trade unions including Indian National Trade Union Congress (INTUC), All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC), Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS), Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU) and All India United Trade Union Centre.

Vandalism in the Zara store in Barcelona.
October 31, 2012, Barcelona, Spain. The CGT and CNT anarchist labor unions called a 24 hour strike. The day of action is in defense of public services and a protest against social cuts and unemployment. They also complain that salaries in Spain are the lowest in Europe while the unemployment rate is the highest: it is over the 25% of the population and in the case of young people under the age of 25 the rate goes up to 52%. Considering this economic context they also criticize the rising taxes such as the VAT.

The protests started at noon in Plaza de Catalunya. From there people went to places like the AppStore in Plaza de Catalunya and the FNAC. After, they went into a Zara store. There was a tense moment as one of the approximately 300 protesters had taken a mannequin and had thrown items on the floor of the store. The people that caused the accident were a group of fifty hooded individuals; CGT claims not to be involved.

Con todo este contexto económico, critican la subida de impuestos como el IVA.
Las protestas de esta jornada han comenzado a mediodía en la plaza de Catalunya. Desde allí se dirigieron a establecimientos como la AppStore de la plaza de Cataluña y también la FNAC. Después han ido a una tienda de Zara, donde se han vivido algunos momentos de tensión cuando algunos de los cerca de 300 manifestantes han tomado un maniquí y han lanzado por tierra algunas prendas del establecimiento. Los autores del incidente han sido un grupo de una cincuentena de personas encapuchadas de las cuales la CGT se ha desmarcado totalmente.

Workers gather at the railways in the hall of Sants station.
The rail unions in Barcelona are under the spotlight, with the upcoming strike of all rail services planned for Monday, September 17, 2012. During a protest at Sants Station in Barcelona, union representatives called for public understanding that the strike is against not only employee salary reduction, but also liberalization of the railway section, which many believe will adversely affect the quality of service received by users.
