Massive strikes expected in France

Per the International Herald Tribune, France is bracing for massive strikes tomorrow nationwide due to the poor economy. It will mark the second day of widespread protests in France in the last two months.

French twitterers were buzzing about the prospect on Wednesday.

@jeremy345 (Paris, France): Juste pour la journée de grève de demain : VIVE LE SCOOTER ! Ça risque d'être mouvementé :) (Just for one day strike tomorrow: ENJOY THE SCOOTER! It may be hectic:))

@davidbosman (Paris, France): bon allez, moi aussi je me met en grève. Jusque demain matin ;-) (Good going, me too I shall strike. Until tomorrow morning ;-))

@d2thelhurst (Normandy, France): Not very surprised that strikes are going on in France again this thursday. Trains, schools, universities, buses, subways... will all halt

@melkxx (Undisclosed): En grève demain (On strike tomorrow)

One tweet offered a preview of Twitter activity.

@Pathien (Undisclosed): Allez demain la grève en direct sur Twitter! (Go on strike tomorrow live on Twitter!)
