    Background: FOLLOWING THE DISMISSAL OF 300 WORKERS AT THE FORGES SHIPYARDS AT SEYNE, FRANCE, TRADE UNIONS YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) CALLED OUT ON STRIKE REMAINING WORKERS. IMMEDIATELY, 3,000 DOWNED TOOLS; THEY WERE STRONGLY SUPPORTED IN THIS ACTION BY THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WHO MAKE AN INDIRECT LIVING OUT OF THE SHIPYARDS.

    ALL SHOPS CLOSED DOWN AS STRIKERS AND SYMPATHISERS STAGED A PROTEST MARCH THROUGH THE STREETS OF SEYNE. WIVES, TOGETHER WITH STUDENTS AND SHOPKEEPERS, MARCHED PAST THE SHIPYARD TO DEMONSTRATE THE BITTERNESS FELT OVER THE DISMISSALS.

    CRANES WERE STILL AND THE NORMAL BUSY CLATTER OF THE SHIPYARD STRANGELY MISSING AS THE PROCESSION WENT SLOWLY PAST. AT THE END OF THE MARCH, AT A RALLY THE STRIKERS AND THEIR SUPPORTERS LISTENED TO LEADERS EXPLAINING THEIR DISSATISFACTION OVER THE SACKINGS.
