Week two of the battle raging on the continent, 3 months after the controversial labor law was first announced mid-January. Last Friday, President Chirac went on national television to address his rebellious constituents. French protesters remain unappeased with the President's compromises in drafting the First Employment Contract law.
Today the organizers hope to surpass or at least equal the rallies of last week which drew out 1 to 3 million marchers all over the country.
Ipsos and Le Monde published a survey regarding people's reactions to Chirac's compromise:
"Do you think the President's intervention will resolve the situation or further embolden the opposition?" An average of 71 among those questioned believe the latter.
