The Strike Movement Is More Popular

Oct 25, 2010

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.
