EU sources -European day of action against austerity -November 14, 2012

Unions in 23 countries mobilised against austerity on 14 November. The day of action, organised by the ETUC, was scheduled to signal the unions’ opposition to austerity measures and solidarity with workers falling victim to the cuts. Some 50 trade union organisations from 28 countries participated actively. Actions included protest marches and strikes. ETUC General Secretary Bernadette Ségol commented that Europe’s leaders should recognise the full magnitude of the European mobilisation. According to Ségol the path of austerity is a total failure.
