The government may claim the workers’ mobilization is losing support. But the polls regularly contradict the government. The most recent poll showed more than two-thirds of those polled, 69%, favorable to the strike movement and the demonstrations. This was the highest number so far.
Polls are, by their nature, imprecise, but a number this high is a clear indicator. It shows that when the workers fight, they can gain sympathy from a large section of the whole population.
