All out for a general dream!
There’s a cute little video on the Nouveau Parti Anticapitaliste site in France urging people to get out on the streets for May Day. For the first time all 8 trade union groups are supporting the strike. There’s a joke in there too. Greve in French means strike. Reve means dream. So a ‘reve generale’ is a general dream; a ‘greve generale’ a general strike.(It takes too long to get all the accents in, so any French speakers, forgive me for that and possibly mixing up the genders for reve and greve.)
