Here is a brief comment from a friend who attended this memorable day.
Some echoes of the strike on April 8 hosted by the CCVC which mobilized a huge crowd. Not since early in the case of Norbert Zongo to see such a world. Slogans contained very combative and revolutionary content. The award of Labour has refused the world, some were on the trees outside, others sitting on the tarmac outside the Labour Exchange.
For once, the market for e Ouaga been closed all day, paralyzed economic activities. In Bobo, Koudougou Dori Banfora Gaoua, Manga, everywhere, the mobilization was flawless.
The 5 gold mines in operation also took part in the struggle. TV5 has a unique story about this fight. Getting ready for May 1st and already teachers and SYNTER SNESS are on strike on 13, 14 and 15 April for specific claims.
