This 2011 video is called Austerity in Greece Meant to Break Workers’ Resistance.
A video which used to be on the Internet used to say about itself:
France on Strike – 1995 (54 min). In December 1995 in France a massive national strike took place of railway workers, education workers, postal worker, students and many other public service workers and private industry workers to protest the attack on their pensions and on public services. This video from news footage shows the power of the strike, the democratic process of workers and students voting and discussing the strike in every location and the eventual victory of the national strike. The lessons of this strike for other public workers and students around the world are important today in showing how to organize a militant and democratic struggle. Labor Video Project, P.O.
