The 1995 strikes in France were a series of general strikes in France, mostly in the public sector in late 1995. The strikes received great popular support despite paralyzing the country's transportation infrastructure. The strikes occurred in the context of a larger social movement against the new Jupp government's agenda, which was arguably the largest social movement in France since May 1968. The November-December 1995 general strike has been seen as a turning point in the social movement. Many organisations were created in the aftermath of these strikes. The DARES statistical institute of the Ministry of Employment counted 6 million strike days (summing up each individual's decision to go on strike, per day) in 1995, against 1 million the previous year. Among these 6 million strike-days, 4 million were in the public sector (including France T l com) and 2 million in the private and semi-public sector (including SNCF, RATP, Air France and Air Inter). In this last sector, the average number of strike-days from 1982 to 1994 had been of 1,1 millions a year (while it was 3.3 millions from 1971 to 1981). Starting in November, the SNCF and the RATP were paralyzed for two months.show more
