Unions pile pressure on Villepin with threat of a national strike action
By : Paris - Monday March 20, 2006
By John Lichfield After a weekend of mass student demonstrations and scattered street battles, the French government faces the prospect of a prolonged social crisis unless it suspends its new youth jobs rules. Smelling political blood, trade union leaders will consider calls for a national strike unless the Prime Minister, Dominique de Villepin, withdraws his "easy hire, easy fire" law for young, first-time, job-seekers. More than a million students, sixth-formers and sympathisers joined (...)

French Union Leaders Threaten Strike
By : France - Sunday March 19, 2006
By Philip White (EUNN) London - French union leaders threaten to strike over a contested jobs plan for youths that sparked violent protests in Paris over the weekend. French union leaders have given Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin until tomorrow night to withdraw the plan that would provide jobs for the young that critics of the jobs plan see as a reduction of older workers rights. Speaking on France-Inter radio, Bernard Thibault, head of the CGT union, said, "If the government (...)

Protests Heat Up as France Feels the Chill of Change
By : France - Friday March 17, 2006
PARIS, March 16 - Once again, students are on the barricades in France, evoking comparisons to the uprising of May 1968. But this is not a revolt. It is not 1968 revisited. Certainly, students are taking to the streets and shutting down universities, and tear gas penetrated the heart of Paris. Today, hundreds of thousands of protesters, most of them students, filled the streets and marched in cities throughout France. With teachers, workers, labor union leaders, the jobless, even retirees (...)

When a young Frenchman’s fancy turns to revolution
By : France - Friday March 17, 2006
William Pfaff: When a young Frenchman’s fancy turns to revolution Governments in France are unwise to launch initiatives affecting students and the young when springtime approaches and the sap rises. Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin has put himself in a difficult situation at a moment when the French already suffer depression connected with unemployment, a sense of economic vulnerability and what seems like political futility. This week, Villepin confronts street (...)

The Lies of Bernard-Henri Lévy By Doug Ireland (In these times)
By : Joëlle - Thursday March 16, 2006
Bernard-Henri Lévy is so ubiquitous in France’s media that he is universally referred to as BHL. But in Parisian intellectual and journalistic circles he is known by the moniker BHV-the French department store that sells anything and everything. BHL had hoped to sell himself to the United States with American Vertigo, in which he travels the United States “in the footsteps of Tocqueville.” No one is buying. American Vertigo reminds me of that old movie, If It’s (...)

France : a look at the growing revolt against CPE
By : libcom.org - Wednesday March 15, 2006
French Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin unveiled his labour law liberalisation package CPE on the 16th of January. He said that “urgent” action was needed to “bring the French labour market into the modern era”. The law would see employers hire 18-26 year olds on two year contract that would allow them to fire the youths without notice, and without explanation. In responce, student union bodies called for a week of meetings and mobilisation from 30th january (...)

Signs of the Times Joe Quinn 03/02/2006 What are we to make of the "furore" surrounding the publishing of anti-Islam cartoons by Dutch and French daily papers? The intent seems clear enough - to portray Islam, and therefore all Muslims as fanatic terrorists, and to provoke Muslim groups to confirm for the world that this portrayal is accurate - which is exactly what has happened. Flag and effigy burning has ensued in Pakistan, Indonesia, and the Palestine territories. In Iran, hundreds of (...)

Discrimination against mobile dwellers in France
By : halemfrance.org/ - Wednesday January 18, 2006
Taxation without recognition? Although not recognised officially as housing, caravans will now be paying council tax. The 2006 finance law introduces council tax for people living in mobile, land-based dwellings, mainly caravans and camping-cars. This aggravates existing discrimination and contradicts recent presidential and government statements. The situation is pure dynamite. Will this blow it up? All depends on what will happen during the next few months. In fact, the law will only (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
