Looked like the police were waiting with cameras rolling, for the strikers to attack with sticks & some machetes. The strikers ran toward the police, coming around a barrier. The police cut loose with 10-20 full auto submachine guns. All the strikers were dead within seconds, never getting more than 10 feet past the barrier.

Yeah, with cameras set up, looks like the strikers were set up, then they all fell down, like wooden toys.

The article is biased, worrying about the company missing its schedule & not making a fortune, not the murdered strikers working in deadly conditions.

One thing worse than war, is when one side has all the sub-machine guns.
