France - Guadeloupe - Social Issues - Protests Against Rising Cost of Living

Hooded strikers control the traffic at the LKP (Liyannaj Kont Pwofitasyon) roadblock in Guadeloupe, between Pointe a Pitre and Petit Bourg, next to the Montebello district. A general strike against rising living costs has been in progress on the French Caribbean island of Guadeloupe since Jan. 20. Forty-seven trade unions, associations and political parties under the umbrella organization LKP - The Committee against Extreme Exploitation (lyiannaj kont pwofitasyion in the local dialect) - have brought economic activity to a standstill.
