France: Citroen Auto Workers Fight Back Against Plant Closures - Speak-Out
Join Speak Out Now for a presentation and video showing from the group L’Etincelle, on the current situation in France, and the strike at the Citroen Aulnay plant. In 2012 alone, 266 factories of more than ten workers were closed – one every work day of the year in France. Workers in the factory of PSA Aulnay-sous-Bois, near Paris, went on strike January 16 to fight against the closing of their plant and elimination the jobs of 11,200 workers. Hundreds of strikers have occupied their factory and met daily in a general assembly to renew the strike and to decide on their plans of action. They have gone to other workplaces on strike and facing layoffs to try to build a common fight back. They have held demonstrations in Paris with other workers who are also trying to fight back.
