Thousands march in France against Macron reforms

Macron said on Friday during a visit to Russia that the protests “won't stop” his progress. “I won't preside in light of the polls or demonstrations, because we have done too much of that,” (in the past) he said.

Tens of thousands of people took to the streets across France on Saturday to protest against Emmanuel Macron's policies, but the president said nothing would stop his economic reforms.
The marches, which organisers labelled a “popular tide”, were called by 60 unions, political parties and associations angry at Macron's political overhauls.
However, in Paris police reported a turnout of just 21,000 while the CGT leftist union claimed 80,000 and 250,000 throughout the country.
That compared with a police count of 40,000 and the CGT's 100,000 for the last similar protest in Paris on May 5.

Saturday's marches follow strikes on Tuesday when public-sector employees from street sweepers to teachers joined rail workers in walking out over what they called an “attack” against public services.
It was the third day of stoppages and demonstrations by public workers since last year's sweeping election win by Macron, who has pledged to reduce spending, trim jobs and overhaul large parts of the vast French state.
PCF communist party secretary general Pierre Laurent addressed the crowds, saying: “When we have power so arrogant, so authoritarian in his methods, if the country does not show its strength and unity, we will not be able to push the boundaries.”
Several dozen people were arrested at the start of the demonstration at the Place de la Bastille.
Police said some carried weapons, while others were held violent acts.
Interior Minister Gerard Collomb told AFP the authorities want to limit the activity of the ultra-leftwing blocs who attacked police and property during clashes on May 1.
“I hope that this parade will be a calm parade, where people can express their opinion. We are in a republican state and those who want to break, loot, even attack the police force, are arrested in a preventive way,” he added.
