Continúa la huelga en Francia convocada por la decisión del gobierno de Sarkozyde aumentar la edad de jubilación en el país galo. La jornada de hoy ha estado marcada por importantes movilizaciones y los enfrentamientos entre policía y estudiantes de instituto. El combustible empieza a escasear en las gasolineras por el bloqueo que sufren las refinerías. Los trenes prácticamente no circulan y los controladores aéreos se han sumado a la convocatoria provocando cancelaciones y retrasos en los aeropuertos. Aquí os dejo de una edición o seleccion de lo que más me ha gustado de estos últimos días y os recomiendo comparar con las imágenes de la huelga general en España realizadas por nuestros fotógrafos y que podéis ver en este post de La Mesa de Luz.
