Belgian workers can't get to strike, because of another strike.

The three largest trade unions in Belgium called a demonstration in Brussels Saturday to highlight the problem of diminishing purchasing power, in favour of maintaining a strong, federal social security system, and more tax equity.

Some 20,000 people are demonstrating. The organisers expected more, but say that thousands were unable to make it to Brussels due to a rail strike called by the independent trade union OVS.
So let me get this straight....some strikers can't make it to the strike becuase other strikers are on strike. I can definitly see why we should pay more taxes for these people to get more benefits.
If it wasn't couldn't make it up!
