France: Day of action for work and pensions

Workers from education, transport, post, media, the communication, energy, legal and the banking sector, are on strike today to tell the French government “we don’t pay for your crisis”. Demonstrations are organised in several towns against raising the legal age of retirement, as you can see on the map below.


papers for workers

Migrant Workers have occupied a  building site in Paris demanding legal status today. Several claim that they are working on the site. This is the most recent incident from the strike movement of migrant workers (sans papiers/without papers) that has been supported among others by the French CGT union since the 13th of October. In 2008, several workers have received legal status after occupying their workplaces in France.
