Speakers, drums, whistles. A warning strike the union. Several professional groups want 6.5% more money from the state. And who is the state - the taxpayers. The mood of the protesters was good.
..... a few days later, the union got what they wanted.

Je constate qu'il y a de plus en plus de ces manifestations à travers le monde entier. Comme quoi la démocratie a certains avantages. Celle-ci semble toutefois très calme.

the strikers look quite under the nice sky.
I appreciate to see protest and social pictures, that's unusual but I think it must be shown.

You're capturing well this strike parade by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the union workers who hang up the placard of a request for wage increase and are staging a demonstration. It seems to march tidily. On the other hand, the big social problem of unemployment of the younger age group exists all over the world.

Good evening Wolfgang,
Well collected the faces expression's on the striking workers parade.
Most of them looks worrid, serious and without self-assurance: they know situation in Germany is much better that neighbouring countries and south from there...
I like how you photo people, general speaking, as I went through your gallery, recently.

Great photo! I like it very much: both the subject and the photo itself. The POV and the clarity make it very lively! And the expressions of the people give the final touch that adds vividness and character! Great job!...
Greetings from Greece.

Guten Tag,an excellent journalistic contribution.The philosophy with most people here in the states too,is that the taxpayer has to pay unfairly,especially where teachers are concerned.However if you want a service you have to pay for it.In private industry the prices of the product go up to cover any wage increases.No matter what,we pay.Freundliche Gruesse,Wolfgang.
