Both Instapundit and USS Clueless have items noting the current labor riots in France. Both have also noted the remarkable absence of media coverage of said riots. I thought that SURELY I would be able to find SOMETHING relevant in European papers. No luck so far, but I did manage to find this rather ironic item, in the UK's Observer:

Let's help rebuild Iraq's labour movement

Trade unionists around the world must help Iraqis create one of the vital building blocks of a free society - whatever the US corporations think.

Yes! Who wouldn't be thrilled to have the Iraqis unionized? Only those 'evil' US corporations, of course.
