Elisabeth Borne said on Saturday that she wanted to "convince the French" of the merits of the pension reform, Philippe Martinez calls on them once again this Sunday to take to the streets massively next Thursday, to demand their withdrawal.

So, will the French be “a million to break into the streets”, as the boss of the Communist Party, Fabien Roussel, asked in the Journal du Dimanche?
