Thousands of public workers protest against Macron’s reforms | Macron News | Al Jazeera
Paris, France – Under a stormy sky, more than 15,000 public sector workers have marched across the French capital to protest against President Emmanuel Macron’s planned economic reforms.
A united front of teachers, police officers, transport staff and air traffic controllers rallied on Tuesday, carrying banners and placards condemning a government they say is bent on destroying workers’ rights while targeting people who are already underpaid and overworked.
“We have to fight not just for ourselves but for everyone because the government is hurting the public sector,” a protester said.
“So we’re fighting for France’s vital public services.”
