|Spanish baggage-handlers' strike|
Summer of 1995
A strike among Spanish baggage-handlers that disrupted air traffic for weeks.
A Spanish baggage-handlers' strike was a labour strike among the baggage handlers of Spain that took place for at least two weeks during the summer of 1995. This strike resulted in a record number of holidaymakers being stranded on the strike's second week, a fact that was the top story of Surrey's local news on the day Harry Potter was listening to it from the Dursley's hydrangea bushes.
