Hotels and cruiselines hit by French Caribbean strikes

I am just coming across this story (late) for the first time:

Violent strikes on the French Caribbean islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique have severely hit tourism to the area.

The protests have turned violent causing schools, government offices, petrol stations and banks to close.
