Which Side Are You On?

This could be interesting. The first police union in France (the CRS are the riot police, IIRC) is organizing protests today to express its members' great dissatisfaction with government cutbacks.

I wonder who will be policing it. And what if it turns ugly? Who should I support?

Either way, one thing will be for sure: The police started it.

I think this highlights that, despite the protection police jobs are given when the police are needed to beat down other workers, the bosses can still be just as capricious to them as to any other part of the working class.

Hi Dave.

Indeed. This might be a useful consciousness-raising exercise for one or two of them.

Nice site, btw. Blogrolled.
