...with the somewhat disturbing thought that this might be irony (I do hope it's not) I welcome this poem. Strikes are not always about money, their aim may also be better working conditions or the workers right to organize. Without strikes
and a conscious labor movement democracy is reduced to the election of a parliament. And; I did enjoy the words!

Cheers from Willy

I think strikes play an important role in today's modern's a bit like the press...freedom of speech...
about the poem has some irony...but only to underline some aspects like the fact strike is still consider an act, a charade...

...irony, Vicleanu. Yes, I distinctively feel that
democracy is severely constricted if it's only concern should be elections.

Cheers from Willy

I have to comment here...coming from britain and of age to see arther scargill take the miners to there doom...and also being part of many closed shops as a employee on a worker side of the fence and as a manager...I have to say reluctantly the french have my vote.If the "people" get pissed off they all stick together as working people and force issues.Yes violence and destruction is involved but they seem to get heard and resolvement follows very quickly.

A strike is like a knife...for both sides.
