France: Calls for demonstrations before the fall of the government spread on social networks



AA/Paris/Feïza Ben Mohamed

Calls for a demonstration in Place de la Concorde before the fall of the French government have multiplied on social media since Article 49.3 of the constitution was enacted to pass the pension reform.

Despite the explosive situation across the country for the third day in a row, demonstrators will once again gather across France to express their hostility to the reform project.

But the most sensitive gatherings naturally remain those that take place every evening at 6pm on the Place de la Concorde, in the immediate vicinity of the National Assembly.

Calling for demonstrations “every evening until the government falls,” an anonymous collective called “Prise de la Concorde” is calling on the French to keep fighting.

“Nothing stopped him. Neither the most impressive mass demonstrations in recent history, nor the persistent and stubborn resistance of public opinion,” he lamented on Twitter, welcoming the fact that “demonstrations, strikes and blockades have resumed with a vengeance since Thursday.”

With the Place de la Concorde considered “obviously”, the initiators of the movement want to structure the rest of the struggle “in places of meetings, experiences of collective strength and multiple sensations over time”.

Violent violence broke out between protesters and police on Thursday and Friday, with previous rallies in which fires were set and shop windows were looted.

Along with street anger, the executive is facing two no-confidence motions that are due to be voted on on Monday.
