Victory for Chilean Miners

After a 37 day strike by 13,000 miners in Chile voted to take the company's revised and improved offer.

Since I'm currently living in Santiago and witnessed the workers slandered on the news by the ConcertaciĆ³n (centrist ruling coalition currently in power) and from the Right and personally saw strikers picketting outside of some of Chile's major banks that have connections to the mine owners, I'm going to make a better effort to keep ya'll up to date on struggles from the bottom of the world from English and Spanish press. If you have any suggested sources, let me know!
