OCTOBER 28 — The Red Star Society of the United States has announced the opening of a new fund for the receipt of donations earmarked for the support of striking workers in France, according to its interim National Coordinator.
"This new fund was established by the Society as a means of fulfilling the commitment it made when it signed an international appeal for support and aid to French workers," said Martin Schreader in a statement to media yesterday.
He noted that French unions do not have funds to help workers financially when they are on strike. "Those workers still on strike have no money," he continued. "Many of them are facing hunger and possibly even homelessness as a result of standing up for their past gains."
