STRAIGHT. Pensions: Anger continues to be expressed on the street ahead of the March 23 strike


  • New unsanctioned gatherings were recorded last night in several French cities to challenge the final adoption of the pension reform in the Assembly.
  • Emmanuel Macron will perform on TF1 and France 2 at 13:00 this Wednesday. The head of state considered it necessary to “calm down” and “listen to the anger” of the French, while saying that the “crowd” does not have “legitimacy” in front of elected officials.
  • Deputies RN and Nupes seized the Constitutional Council with the aim of invalidating the reform.
  • The incidents took place yesterday in front of the Fos-sur-Mer oil depot, near Marseille, where strikers blocked access to the facility. The police also evacuated the Donge oil port.
  • Tomorrow will be the ninth day of inter-allied mobilization against the reform. The Ministry of the Interior has planned the deployment of 12,000 police and gendarmes in France, the largest contingent since mobilization began.

A few get-togethers last night

Unannounced demonstrations were recorded in Lille, Rennes, Grenoble, Nantes and Paris, sometimes resulting in clashes between police and demonstrators, as in the capital.


“The mob has no legitimacy in the face of elected officials,” Macron says.

In front of parliamentarians in the presidential camp, Emmanuel Macron assessed on Tuesday evening that it was necessary to “calm down” and “listen to the anger” of the French after the controversial passage of the text by parliament, while arguing that the “crowd” had no “legitimacy” in the form of elected officials.
