Pension reform: Nupe’s meeting at Gymnasium Japa through the eyes of a Parisian

While all trade union organizations of workers are calling for demonstrations this Thursday, the main leaders of the Nupes, Fabien Roussel, Olivier Faure, Marine Tondelier, Mathilde Panot and François Ruffin gathered their troops on Tuesday, January 17, at the Japy Gymnasium, in the historic Paris Hall meeting of the left, which in 2005 began mobilizing for NO to a new European constitution.

In front of a hall full of dedicated activists, the tribune took turns taking the stage to unanimously denounce the pension reform and call on the walls of the Elysee Palace to shake while playing their own score.

Fabien Roussel, National Secretary of the French Communist Party, welcomes Olivier Faure, candidate to succeed him as First Secretary of the Socialist Party.

On stage, at the back of Japy’s gym, the slogan is displayed on stage in the colors of the Nupes rainbow.

The leaders take their places on the stage according to their proximity. Marine Tondelier, the new boss of the Greens, takes a selfie with Olivier Faure, Fabien Roussel and Francois Ruffin. Mathilde Panot, president of the LFI group in the National Assembly, will not be slightly to the left of the picture.

There is also a rainbow in the room among the activists.

There are many young people in the ranks of the hall, but also many pensioners.

A few raised fists are raised, but it’s “La Marseillaise”, which is intoned at the end, and later in the evening a restrained “Internationale” is heard.

The students are in the front row.
