Biggest Strike in world: India Engulfed in Red Banners as Workers Strike Back

Journal of People

IN PICTURES: Tens of millions of workers shut down the country in what is believed to be the largest labor action the world has seen.

The working class of India struck back hard on Friday in a nationally coordinated labor action led by the Center of Indian Trade Unions. The historic work stoppage is by far the largest strike the country—and possibly the world—has ever seen, and reflects a high degree of class-conscious militancy on the subcontinent.
