The end of the road for Arcelor Mittal workers?

By Clea Caulcutt

The marchers are singing "we are motivated, Mittal is going to give in".... It’s the last leg of the journey for the seventeen steelworkers. They have walked 350 km from their furnaces in the east of France to protest job losses at their worksite - the steel plant owned by global mining firm ArcelorMittal. Train driver Lessim Bader says he is jubilant to be in Paris.
