Millions take to the streets of France for ‘the weakest and the workers’


MILLIONS of French workers walked out today in the latest bid to force President Emmanuel Macron to ditch his destructive policies which are rolling back the country’s protections for the “weakest and the workers.”

For the first time since 2007, all nine public-sector unions — which represent around 5.4 million workers — called their members out to protest against new labour laws eroding working conditions, as well as plans to slash the number of civil servants by 120,000 over the next five years.

“We are going to remind [Mr Macron] that there’s the bubble he lives in and there’s the real world,” said union federation CGT leader Philippe Martinez.
