As managers and directors of the FEB, the jury considering the sentence to hard labor , "said Antoine Roisin, spokespersons JOC. " For years, the ELF and its members preach austerity and destruction of our futures on behalf of the profits of their shareholders. To impose through their political connections, they have hijacked democracy , "said he added. According to Antoine Roisin, these measures do not create jobs but concentrate all the wealth " in the hands of a small elite . " " On behalf of the crisis that the elite has created, they now justify the dismantling of labor law, the destruction of our lives and work, and the bracketing of democracy , "he has concluded .1

The government reported no intention to change course, but the protest movement does not count stop there. Rotating strikes are already planned in the coming weeks. They set the table for the general strike on December 15.
