Strikes continue in France: fuel difficult to obtain

Occupation of the pensions center at Baiona
The general strike continues in France. While police has forced an end to three oil depot blockades, others have taken their place, including the strategical Port du Bouc at Marseilles. One third of gas stations are stopped this way. Among the roads blockaded is the tunnel St. Charles at Marseilles and the border cross at Biritatou, and also the airport of Toulouse. The effect on public transport is c. 30%. Sarko whines but does not yet yield.
