  • Description

    Most of France's 12,000 journalists staged a 24-hour strike on Tuesday (1 February), halting publication of nearly all Paris and provincial newspapers, and reducing radio and television newscasts to a scanty minimum.

    The stoppage was to draw attention to the ills of the French press, in trouble because of declining advertising revenue, and to protest at redundancies caused by newspaper economy drives.

    Journalists of the state-run ORTF radio network cut their normal hourly bulletins to three newscasts. And two independent radio stations reduced news bulletins on a lesser scale.
