Paris General Strike
The General Confederation of Labor (CGT) has called upon all French workers, both in the private and public sector, to strike on Tuesday, September 12, in opposition to new labor laws.
Although the impact of the strike is not yet known, other major French unions have called upon their workers to join the industrial action.
Former presidential candidate and head of the political party “La France Insoumise”, Jean-Luc Mélenchon, has also called upon French workers to strike on September 23.
To aid your coverage, Global Media Services is planning to offer a range of broadcast facilities, including:
* Live stand-up positions in Paris streets along the strike.
* Live stand-up positions in AP's Chromakey Studio.
* Multi-format playout facilities.
* International delivery via AP's satellite and fibre networks.
