* French General Strike * The Attacks on Corbyn

JEAN BRICMONT, [in Paris] jean.bricmont at uclouvain.be
The Wall Street Journal is now reporting: “France Grinds to a Halt as Massive Strike Begins.”

Noted author and academic, Bricmont said today: “I was at the demo in Paris. I have never seen such a dense crowd except during the anti-missile marches during the 80’s and I have been to lots of demonstrations.

“Also the tone was very militant and I heard that many people who never go to demos did come this time.” See his interview on The Real News: “France’s ‘Yellow Vest’ Protests Emerged Spontaneously, without Leadership,” from late last year about the anti-austerity movement.
