threatened post privatisation in france

The french government attempts to privatise the post service. 2,5 million people rejected this plan in an informal public referendum in October. Nevertheless Sarkozy’s government wants to pass the law to privatise the post in November. More than 60 organisations have organised a national committee to stop the privatisation. The national committee is leafleting outside  post offices and organising a demonstrations for October 31st and November 2nd. The campaign to keep the post private also includes sending 4 million postcards to the French president to remind him of the rejection of the privatisation in the referendum.
