French support general strike convened by unions.


PARIS, France.- A large majority of French support the general strike convened this Wednesday by several unions and student organizations, aimed at expressing opposition to the government and demanding greater social justice.

Seventy three per cent of citizens support the mobilization, organized by the General Confederation of Labor, the Workers Force and Solidarity.

The call for the strike noted that the announcements made by French President Emmanuel Macron and his government, do not respond to the expectations of the social movement, since the price of first-need products continues to increase and the suppression of tax on fortune to favor the rich remains.

The protest is the second the unions organize this year, after a first one carried out on February 5 in which more than 300,000 people participated.
