Last year, French workers and youth rose up and defeated the CPE, a major attack on young workers' rights. The last few months have seen major struggles against the country's new president, Nicolas Sarkozy, including by rail workers and students. Meanwhile, the far left is strong and growing, and in the last presidential election, two million voted for revolutionary socialist candidates.
Come and hear a report back from the delegation of young AWL members who visited France last month, and discuss how we can support and what we can learn from the French workers' movement and left.
