Strikes in Spain to affect travel
27 March 2012
A General Strike has been called for 29 March by the two largest trades unions in Spain. Services at Spanish airports may be significantly disrupted.
The strike may also affect public transport within Spain.
Yes, but I've got a secret weapon called Mr. Pesky Wesky.Everything crossed for you! At least you're going in the right direction and won't face any onward travel problems, I see they are seriously limiting access to the airports for taxis, buses, etc.
the schools are open here but not with full staff & the kids could stay off with parental permissionAll supermarkets, shops and petrol stations open in this area. So far very little closed it seems, apart from my Mother's hairdresser who closed because she feared she would be fined if she opened. Not sure who she thinks would fine her but methinks it was simply an excuse to have a day off. She's British, btw.
Keep warm ....it's cold and windy here today.the schools are open here but not with full staff & the kids could stay off with parental permission
don't know about shops - I'm in bed with flu
I would say that she has been watching what happened last summer in the UK and trying to turn it to her advantage.Esperanza Aguirre, the PP head of the regional government of Madrid, had called on people to "put up on social networks any photos or videos" of "any act of violence or of coercion by pickets". She has repeated the idea on her own Twitter feed.
But Spain's National Police force has just put out its own tweet, asking people not to use Twitter for official complaints.
"Please, for warnings, incidents, queries or requests for help about #huelga (strike) do not use Twitter. Dial 091. The coordination is better there," it says.
