French unions kick off national strike
Thursday 19 March 2009
FRENCH unions kicked off a national strike on Thursday to press the government to boost the minimum wage, increase taxes on the rich and scrap plans to cut public-sector jobs.
At least one million people flooded the streets of central Paris and hundreds of thousands took part in some 200 demonstrations in other towns and cities across the country.
