A car pulls up and armed men get out, they talk with the strikers who shout at them to go away. More armed men (wearing arm bands) walk down the street guns held at the ready. One of the armed men takes a stick from one of the strikers and hits him with it. The strikers shout at this action. The men with arm bands start moving the strikers back and then the two sides start beating each other. The men with guns then start firing - both live rounds and tear gas.
