The Minister of Labor Olivier Dussopt estimated this Friday, January 27 that the symbolic closure of town halls on January 31 in solidarity with the mobilization against the pension reform posed a problem of “neutrality”and accused Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo of confusing “municipal services with an annex” of the PS.

” It is a real political question, in terms of neutrality and respect for the beliefs of fellow citizens, of citizens who, for some, are opposed [à la réforme], [pour] others favorable “, estimated Olivier Dussopt on BFMTV and RMC.

” On strike until retirement ” ? In Paris, demonstrators determined to mobilize over time
“I have a bit of the feeling that the mayor of Paris is confusing municipal services with an annex of the Socialist Party”, mocked Olivier Dussopt, a former member of the PS. He mentioned a problem moral or political because “among the Parisians […]all those who are not opposed to it will be deprived of access to public services to which they are entitled, as a result of political commitment” of their mayor.
Other municipalities have joined this movement of “solidarity town halls”, such as that of Bonneuil-sur-Marne (Val-de-Marne). The LFI mayor of Faches-Thumesnil (Nord), Patrick Proisy, for his part announced on Twitter that the hours of strike of the agents of his city would not be counted from 2 p.m., “so that they can go to the demonstration in Lille in the afternoon”.
