[VIDEO] Spanish miners night time march

Moving video of the night time march of the Spanish miners in León on June 12. Two thousand miners with tens of thousands of their supporters showed the light of working class struggle in the dark night of capitalist crisis and austerity cuts. 

The song in the background is the traditional miners anthem Santa Barbara bendita, here are the lyrics in English:

In the María Luisa mine
Trailarai larai, trailarai
In the María Luisa mine
Trailarai larai, trailarai
Four miners have died

Look, look Maruxina, look
look how I'm coming home

My shirt has turned red
Trailarai larai, trailarai
My shirt has turned red
Trailarai larai, trailarai
Stained with the blood of a fellow miner

Look, look Maruxina, look
look how I'm coming home

My head has broken
Trailarai larai, trailarai
My head has broken
Trailarai larai, trailarai
It was broken in a blast

Look, look Maruxiña, look
look how I'm coming home

Blessed Saint Barbara,
Trailarai larai, trailarai
Blessed Saint Barbara
Trailarai larai, trailarai
Patron saint of the miners

Look, look Maruxina, look
look how I'm coming home

Patron saint of the miners
Look, look Maruxina, look
look how I'm coming home
