(en) Czech, afed: France: hundreds of thousands of people in the streets it massively protests against the neoliberal amendment to the Labor Code. [machine translation]

Date Fri, 22 Sep 2017 08:50:20 +0300

Protesters' clashes with the police occurred on September 12 in Paris and other cities during a protest march organized by unions against the government reform of the Labor Code. ---- The aim of the changes, which, according to the Government's statement, should be launched by the end of September, is to create a more flexible and effective mechanism for trade union and employer engagement. In fact, it concerns the extension of employers' rights, the further abolition of the rights of wage-earners, the liberalization of redundancies, ---- One of the largest trade unions in CGT has called for protests and strikes. Half a million people came to the streets in Lyon, Marseilles, Lille and many other cities. In Paris, about sixty thousand people protested in the streets. Altogether, there were protests in 180 locations, 4,000 strikes of state sector workers, services, railways and schools (although it was still a warning strike). According to surveys, Macron's reform rejects 60 percent of the population, but the government is determined to enforce it through a presidential decree. Marcon, among other things, has earned a record fall of its popularity.

Conflicts with the police during the protests occurred mainly in Paris, Lyon, Marseille, but also in other cities. The police have traditionally used water cannons and tear gas.

Further protests will follow in September.

Anarcho-syndicalist analysis of last year's protests can be read in Revue Existence No. 2/2017 .
