A coal miner stands by a burning barricade blocking the A-64 road between Lieres and Oviedo in northern Spain September 26, 2010. Spain's two largest unions have called for another 48-hour strike by coal miners on September 29th and 30th to demand that wages be paid and the government implement a long-delayed plan to aid the industry. About 35 percent of Spain's roughly 7,400 miners say they have gone without pay for about two months, which has prompted many to down tools for three weeks since September 2, as well as block roads in protest and hold underground sit-ins in two mines.
