On the wave of the “march against the high cost of living”

Two days after a decisive mobilization against pension reform in several French cities, a new social movement took place in Paris on Saturday at the call of youth organizations. This was supported by recalcitrant France.

According to the organizers, 150,000 people marched in the capital. They achieved their goal of achieving a mobilization at least equal to that of the “march against the high cost of living” organized by the melanchounists in October. The instigators registered 140,000 people, while the police marked 30,000 people.
