Around the world in 8 minutes: Episode 02

This episode of Around the World in 8 minutes takes you to New Delhi, India where millions of defiant workers went on a two-day general strike against the policies of the far-right Narendra Modi government. We also look at a countrywide strike by teachers in Zimbabwe, who are unhappy with their paltry salaries, and report on the systematic targeting of social leaders in Colombia.
