<nettime> About French demonstrations against the new labor law?

I heard for the first time last night that there have been big
demonstrations in France against the passage of the new labor
law which will make it possible for people under 26 years of age
to be fired without reason.

This would seem to give encouragement to employers to terminate
older workers as well as it will encourage harsh treatment toward
younger workers.

The government ending the occupation of the Sorbonne seems to be
a provocation of sorts to the growing movementing against the new
labor law.

It would be good to know more about what is happening if others on
nettime have been following these events.
