The arm wrestling between the French people opposed to the pension reform and the executive, stubborn despite 5 days of strong mobilization, will harden from March 7, 2023. Who will bend? And what is behind this damned reform ?
Point-of-View – While 2 million French people were marching in the streets on Thursday, January 19, Emmanuel Macron said from abroad that the pension reform will be done with “determination” because it was in his electoral program. A real provocation.
A 48-hour strike was voted at Le Républicain Lorrain (Metz), a 24-hour walkout at L’Est Républicain (Nancy, Besançon) and at Vosges Matin (Epinal), all three of which belong to the EBRA group (Crédit Mutuel).
The 27ᵉ report of the Fondation Abbé Pierre draws up a critical assessment of the Macron quinquennium, far from the promises of a housing “supply shock” while the country has four million poorly housed and 300,000 homeless people.
