“Tax Justice”, “64 is no”… One of the doors of the National Assembly and the nearby statue of the Law displayed messages hostile to the pension reform on Tuesday morning, at the dawn of a new day of mobilization by opponents. The statue of the Law which overlooks the Place du Palais-Bourbon, on which the National Assembly overlooks, was decked out in a blue chasuble, a pink polka-dot cap, and brandished a flag of the Attac association and a sign for a “retire at age 60”.
According to a series of tweets and videos broadcast on the Twitter account of Attac France, activists from their association and from the feminist movement Les Rosies carried out an action on this emblematic place to “denouncing the illegitimate, unjust and unjustified nature of the reform”. Still according to a tweet from Attac France, 8 activists were arrested by the police.
The President of the National Assembly Yaël Braun-Pivet denounced this action, thanking the police for their intervention.
