2010: Blockades, direct action and demonstrations in France. 2011: G8-G20 in France

16 year old in critical condition after being hit in face by police “flashball”

French strikes continue. Strikes spread across the country on fourth day of nationwide protests over pension reforms. Three fuel storage depots have been reopened by riot police in France, as fears grow of a shortage at the pumps. Nine of the country’s 12 refineries have shut down due to strike action prompted by the government’s plans for pension reform. High school students have joined the pension protests for the first time this week. 360 high schools across the country were closed this morning due to protests by students. In Paris, one of them is in a critical condition after being hit in the face by a “flashball” – a device used by police for crowd control.


Oh yes, and surely you remember the recent expulsion of the Roma community...

Despite our repeated attempts to stop their meetings, the heads of the most powerful states will meet again for the G8 and G20 in France in 2011.With the political, economic and environmental context, the reasons to show our disagreements and alternatives abound.
