(CNT: The old anarchist confederation. The above comment comes today from one anonymous French blogger to another, in a discussion of a high-school occupation.)
All we know right now is that the "manifs" in France today, the marches called to protest the Government's dismantling of the French social security system, have gathered even more demonstrators than the previous one.
The Government claims some 500,000 marchers, meaning in actuality close to 3 million. Everyone agrees it's a larger group.
The real test, as usual, will come tonight and tomorrow: unlike previously, a large number of strikers have already voted for an unlimited strike, as opposed to the limited day strike that allowed them to go march today. The next step is the occupation of workplaces and schools.
And, BTW: the bad news for Kossacks is, La Tour Eifel is closed today, with 260 of the 300 personnel having voted to strike a few minutes ago. Come back tomorrow, Mr. and Mrs. Tourist. Unless, of course...
