Strike of January 31: the course of the demonstration against the pension reform in Paris


The demonstrators will set off at 2 p.m. from Place d'Italie (13th) to reach Place Vauban (7th) around 7 p.m.

The second round will take place on the left bank.

The procession of demonstrators opposed to the pension reform will cross the south of Paris next Tuesday, according to a press release from the police headquarters published on Sunday.

"The demonstrators will leave Place d'Italie at 2 p.m., to reach Place Vauban at 7 p.m.," the statement said.

They will pass by Avenue des Gobelins, Boulevard de Port Royal, Boulevard du Montparnasse and Boulevard des Invalides.

“Private vehicles parked along the route or its surroundings will be subject to displacement measures”, warns the police.

Traffic will therefore be "very seriously disrupted in this perimeter", continues the press release which invites motorists to bypass this sector for the duration of the event.

Very disrupted traffic in transport

This will be the second day of mobilization against the government's plan after that of January 19, which saw 1.1 million people take to the streets, according to the Ministry of the Interior.

Public transport traffic in the capital will be greatly disrupted, announced the RATP, as will the circulation of TER and TGV trains.

The pension reform project must be presented Monday to the National Assembly.

Prime Minister Élisabeth Borne flexed her muscles this Sunday in an interview with Franceinfo, saying that the postponement of the retirement age from 62 to 64, contested by the unions and most of the opposition, does not was now "more negotiable".

The Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin also defended the project in our columns, believing that "to bring our pension system into balance" we had to "work more".

"They want to force through, so the best response will be millions of people in the street on Tuesday," replied the coordinator of insubordinate France, Manuel Bompard, on BFMTV.
