    Background: Visnews filmed Feb 9 the latest social unrest behind France's North East border where Belgian workers forming a backbone of skilled artisanship in industry have taken to strike action in protest over pay losses caused by the devaluation of the franc.

    While the men's unions and the French Government sought a settlement - so far they have failed - workers representing 40,000 unemployed met at Moucron's main square after parading through the streets. Most French factories have closed in the region.
