In response to a new government labor contract (CPE) which erases job security for all workers under the age of 26, French students and workers erupt in a nationwide revolt. More than 75% of French universities are occupied by striking students, along with a comparable number of highschools.
Anti-CPE rioting and clashes with police spread across the country, and 69% of the population continues to support the demonstrations. On Saturday, March 18, 1.5 million students, workers, and youth march, threatening to escalate further action.
On Monday, a national strike is called for March 28. Polls reveal that some 71% of French now believe that in the anti-CPE unrest exists “a major social crisis which can become extensive during weeks which come”.
