French students and unions stepped up pressure on the government Monday, calling for a strike on March 28 to fight a contested new labor law that makes it easier for companies to fire young employees.
This is called as a nationwide day of strikes and protests, and as transportation unions are involved, they have the power to shut down the country.
Tbey also report that a union demonstrator was trampled by police and badly injured. Police then refused to call for medical help. He is in a coma, the union is furious, and this movement has a rallying symbol.
