In Paris, bird traders will take legal action


They oppose the closure of the famous market, near Notre-Dame, which was validated by Anne Hidalgo, in the name of animal welfare.

Canaries, parakeets, inseparable… Their song, which brightens up the Sundays of hundreds of enthusiasts and tourists, near Notre-Dame de Paris, must be permanently silent on Christmas Day: the mayor of the capital, Anne Hidalgo, has signed a deliberation , after the last Council of Paris, mid-November, which validated the closure of the Bird Market.

A turning point, in the name of animal welfare, for this institution which was founded in 1881.

Under Art Deco-style cast-iron arbors, this site in the heart of Paris, touted in multiple tourist guides, should therefore soon be a thing of the past.

But the dispute is rumbling: the dozen traders concerned as well as specialized associations have decided to take legal action.

According to our information, they will introduce a summary procedure before the administrative court of Paris in order to obtain the suspension of the deliberation.
