In search of a place to house the quarantined French upon their return from China, the government had asked the CGT to lend one of the many castles it owned.
The Communist Union refused.
At the end of January, 200 Frenchmen from the Wuhan region, the epicenter of the coronavirus epidemic, were repatriated to France.
Prime Minister’s Office asked the Communist CGT to make one of the 15 castles it owns available to them.
As a gesture of solidarity, the CGT said NIET to the government’s request.
Human decency toward the victims is obviously not relevant to the Union President Philippe Martinez, who by the way lives in an upscale apartment and receive a hefty salary.
In the end, the 200 people were confined to a holiday center in Carry-le-Rouet (South of France).

Please take a moment to consider this. Now, more than ever, people are reading Geller Report for news they won't get anywhere else. But advertising revenues have all but disappeared.
