This week, in Strasbourg, German steel workers demonstrated in front of the European Parliament, urging the EU to take action against low tariffs on Chinese imports which have led to dumping and thousands of job losses in the EU. The workers' call to MEPs comes two days before an important vote in the European Parliament on granting China market economy status. The president of the Socialists & Democrats Group in the European Parliament, Gianni Pittella, has already stated that his group will not back it.
 
S&D MEPs Alessia Mosca (Italy), Jo Leinen (Germany), David Martin (UK) and Edouard Martin (France) joined the steel workers' demonstration to back their call to compete on a level playing field.
