Strike in Denmark  
In Denmark more than 560,000 workers - a quarter of the national workforce -walked off the job April 27 after rejecting a pay deal proposed by the employers association. Factory production, transport, construction work, and garbage collection were largely halted, in a work stoppage that is expected to last at least a week. This is the first large-scale strike in Denmark since 1985. Next week's Militant will carry a first hand report from the picket lines. Above, strikers rally in Copenhagen Town Hall Square.
