France. The strangely intermittent general strike in opposition to proposed pension reforms in france is neither “general”, nor truly a “strike”. If the movement is soon to enter its third month, with another day of protest scheduled for today (Yesterday, Paris-luttes.info), the strike has never succeeded in paralysing the country’s economy (indeed, it barely reaches past the more unionised public sector).Continue reading #France: Who is afraid of a general strike?

We made no demands whatsoever, but took the room to spread our ideas and show our solidarity.Continue reading #Berlin: Reflection of the occupation of the Greek consulate at December 23, 2019

A call from france:Continue reading March 14 – #Paris: If we all storm forward, the king will fall
