When You’ve Lost Slate.fr, you’ve Lost Middle Earth

That notwithstanding, at least they question pointless Marxist dinosaur Jean-Luc Mélenchon’s notion that he’s « for the worker ».
"I can give you the phone numbers of every trade unionists in the struggle, I know them all," says Laurence Sauvage, CGT syndicalist and Regional Councillor of Nord-Pas de Calais, responsible for monitoring the social struggles in the Left Party ("the Front of the struggle"). He states that, unlike other candidates, his organization is simply responding to requests from company employees threatened with closure.
It sounds much better in the original Klingon:
«Je peux vous donner les numéros de tous les syndicalistes en lutte, je les connais tous», explique Laurence Sauvage, syndicaliste CGT et conseillère régionale du Nord-Pas-de-Calais, chargée du suivi des luttes sociales au Parti de gauche («le Front des luttes»). Qui précise que, contrairement aux autres candidats, son organisation ne fait que répondre aux demandes des salariés des entreprises menacées de fermeture.
Or not. When you’re left to protesting against businesses over the issue of them going under, what exactly are you doing for their (former) employees?
