Pension reform: big cities do not mobilize


MAP - In the middle of school holidays, with the exception of Ile-de-France and Occitanie, the parades are sparse.

Without real surprise, the parades seem much more sparse this Thursday for this 5th day of protest against the pension reform project.

No question for all that for the unions to give up.

We believe in the withdrawal of this reform


In the middle of school holidays, with the exception of Ile-de-France and Occitanie, mobilization throughout France was expected to decline.

Analysts at Place Beauvau have estimated that between 450,000 and 650,000 people are expected to take to the streets this Thursday across the country, including 40 to 70,000 people in Paris.

Either a mobilization which would be in sharp decline compared to that of last Saturday, which brought together 933,000 people in particular with the presence of families taking advantage of the weekend to pound the pavement.

What about the big cities too?

The map is continuously updated.

In Rennes, under a fine rain, they were only 6,700 in the streets against 25,000 on Saturday during the 4th day of mobilization.

A figure that marked a record since the start of the movement on January 19.

Same situation in Toulouse: the organizers claimed 65,000 demonstrators (against 100,000 on Saturday) but according to the police, 14,000 people marched (30,000 on Saturday).

In Tarbes, they were between 3,200 (police) and 8,000 (unions) and in Montauban between 1,400 (police) and between 4,000 to 5,000 (unions).

They were also between 5,200 and 6,500 in Pau or between 2,000 and 15,000 in Nice.

Small exception in Dieppe where the demonstrators were more numerous to pound the pavement: 1800 against 1400 last Saturday.
