Six employees of Air France have been arrested after violence last week against two human resources managers who had the unpleasant task of announcing that 2500+ jobs would be lost. Politicians Jean-Luc Mélenchon (Party of the Left), Cécile Duflot (ex-Ecology Minister), and Pierre Laurent (French Communist Party) immediately denounced the arrests. "What a day of mourning! Four employees arrested for 'an act of struggle'," said Mélenchon. His party said that it was "ashamed of this administration, which continues to criminalize union activity."
