The wrong side of the Atlantic

We need trade unions who are prepared to unite to defend their members, not to look over their shoulder about whether they're embarassing their friends in goverment.

This week in France...

We believe in the power of the street. In France, all our social battles were won on the street. It's always been like that and it always will be. This is about the kind of society we want. Do we want liberalism to reign, or do we want a society of social support and equality?
—Adrien Bouzard, 22, second-year anthropology student at Nanterre university
