While many French people are mobilizing against pension reform, Elon Musk has publicly announced his support for the President of the Republic on his social network.
A publication that will not go unnoticed. This Friday, January 20, the head of Twitter reacted to the publication of a video showing a demonstration against pension reform in Lyon. In response, he does not hesitate to express his opinion on the reform, which he considers “difficult but fair.”
“The retirement age of 62 was set when life expectancy was much shorter. It is impossible for a small number of workers to support a huge number of pensioners,” he adds. Very clear support for the French government and Emmanuel Macron, whom he met in early December 2022, in particular to talk about content moderation on Twitter.
Recall that at the end of the same month, Elon Musk announced that he wants to leave the head of the social network as soon as he finds someone “crazy enough” to take his place.
Another big march this weekend
While Philippe Martinez, general secretary of the CGT, told AFP that on Thursday, January 19, more than two million people in France opposed the pension reform, another massive mobilization will take place this Saturday.
Announced in early December, this event will start at 2:00 pm at Place de la Bastille in Paris. An event supported by La France Insoumise (LFI) initiated by several movements of young activists on the left, such as young environmentalists and young NPAs.
“Makron, you screwed up, all the people on the street”
