Long live the struggle of the French working class! Let us remember that today there was a new day of struggle in France against the pension reform.

In a brief act, Néstor Segovia and Beto Pianelli took the floor. Pianelli remarked that “we made our debut with a stoppage, because tomorrow we are going to be stopping lines B and C. It is because of the demand for the two francs. We have already managed to reduce the working day to 6 hours but we only have one franc a week. Let’s go for 30 hours. We are exposed to asbestos and unsanitary conditions. But also today the workers earn less, we produce more and that is appropriated by the bosses. We are going to give the debate with the body, ”he said.

The issue of occupational health in the subway is a topic that is deeply felt by its workers and workers. Much more so when they saw colleagues die from exposure to carcinogenic asbestos.
