Introduced by Red Flag editor Daniel Taylor.

Neoliberalism in France has been challenged by a working-class strike movement that has shut down huge workplaces and filled the city streets with protesters. Inspired by the street-fighting heroism and creativity of the Yellow Vests, militant trade unionists around France are providing the world with a model for a modern-day social movement led by the working class. But the movement has challenges: questions of politics, strategy, and organisation.
