STRIKE ACTION:The blockade, led by the CGT and “yellow vests”, lasted about ten hours
The police have dislodged this Monday morning, shortly before 8am, the protesters who blocked access to the oil depot of Frontignan, near Sete, Herault.
On the night of Sunday to Monday, members of the CGT Cheminots, supported by “yellow vests”, set up dams in front of the refinery, as part of the protest against the pension reform. The blockade, which would have gathered between 150 and 200 people according to a union source, lasted about ten hours.

“A symbol of capitalism”
” Bending the government will not pass without a blockage of the economy, that’s what holds everything, said Monday morning by Sébastien Boudesocque, spokesman for the CGT Cheminots in Herault. Oil is one of the symbols of capitalism. ”
This is not the first time that the Frontignan fuel depot is targeted by such action. “Yellow vests” had already blocked access to the site héraultais, there is about a year, before being dislodged by the police.
