France dock workers on strike

 

A large force of riot police was used in the French city of Marseille to break up a month-long strike by ferry workers protesting against planned cuts. They arrested 14 strikers who were blockading the Mediterranean city’s port in protest at plans to reduce summer crossings from Nice to Corsica. The workers bravely fought back by spraying police with water hoses. 

At least 700 police officers were deployed to end the strike on 10th March 2011. Police boarded a docked car ferry ship, the Kalliste, to remove protesters. Protesters had commandeered lifeboats and strung rope and nets across the port’s entrance, disrupting maritime traffic. The strikers from the ferry company Societe Nationale Maritime Corse Mediterranee (SNCM) want the total number of ferries to remain the same so as to avoid job losses.

Parties of the capitalist class claim that there is no
alternative to the program of globalisation,liberalisation
and privatisation. The truth is thatthere IS an alternative.

The alternative is to reorient the economy to fulfil people’s
needs instead of fulfilling capitalist greed. This is the
program for the Navnirman of India.
