Mobilization on the rise over a large part of the country

United, the unions won their bet last week, bringing together 1.27 million people across France, including 87,000 in Paris.

221 parades brought together an equal or greater number of protesters while only 35 saw their ranks sparse.

In Thonon, in Haute-Savoie, the mobilization was multiplied by almost seven, from 200 to 1,300. Same thing in Saint-Omer in Pas-de-Calais, with 4,500 individuals present against 1,450, in two processions , the previous time.

At the departmental level, it is the Vaucluse which has approximately doubled its number of demonstrators, carried by the Avignon mobilization alone.

In the City of the Popes, 7,600 people beat the pavement last Tuesday, against only 3,500 during the previous day of strike, January 19.

The challenge simply recedes in five departments

The processions were also massive in the prefectures and other “medium-sized cities”.

One inhabitant of Morlaix (Finistère) and its surroundings in six was on the street.

A few kilometers further south, in Quimperlé, there were 5,000 protesters for 35,000 individuals in the urban area.

If Brittany is accustomed to large events, this is less the case in the Grand Est.

However, 10% of the city of Langres (Haute-Marne) marched against the bill presented by Emmanuel Macron.

Intense mobilization in “medium-sized cities”

It is also in Haute-Marne, in Joinville, that one of the 21 new gatherings took place on Tuesday, January 31.

Three additional events also took place in the Somme, in Albert, Péronne and Doullens, two in Vendée (Les Sables-d'Olonne and Challans) and in Meurthe-et-Moselle (Toul and Longwy).

A concrete sign of the dynamism of the first days of mobilizations, only three meeting points disappeared between January 19 and 31: Montval-sur-Loir, Nogent-sur-Oise and Chauny.

They had mustered only 2,870 strikers.

21 new gathering places

With its big difference between the estimates of the authorities and those of the unions, this social movement is no exception to the rule.

The capital remains the place where the gap is the greatest — from 87,000 to 500,000 individuals.

Marseille is hardly spared by this French phenomenon.

When the Bouches-du-Rhône prefecture had a demonstrator, the unions saw more than five on the Canebière.

The report was similar in Saint-Étienne (Loire), with between 9,150 and 50,000 people in the street, as well as in Lille (Nord) – from 15,000 to 70,000 protesters.
