9. SOUNDBITE: (French) Bernard Thibault, CGT French Union leader:

"If all the EU railway unions in Paris are asking for the same thing then it's a situation requiring urgent action from the President of the European Union, who only a few weeks ago was saying that some market activities didn't make any sense and that a new era was coming. So it's time to learn the lesson in our decision making, notably in the deregulation of railway transportation."

STORYLINE:

Thousands of rail workers protested in Paris on Thursday against EU plans to privatise national railways.

Train drivers from around Europe were protesting against EU proposals that will lead to the privatisation of international railway services in 2010, followed by domestic rail services.

The European Transport Workers' Federation (ETF), an umbrella group for transport trade unions throughout Europe, said that while the objective was to gather thousands of rail workers form across 13 EU countries for the demonstration there would be no disruption to any services.

French unions claim the state-owned train systems are being made more profitable to the detriment of employees and network security.

Steve Todd from the British railway union, the RMT said his union had witnessed privatisation of the rail network in the UK, and wanted to show his support for his colleagues in Europe facing privatisation.

Portuguese rail unions also gathered in the French capital.

Bernard Thibault from the French rail union, the CGT called on the current President of the European Union, French President Nicholas Sarkozy to take action.
