Thousands of people from unions and political parties gathered in Marseilles on Saturday to protest against French President Emmanuel Macron following his proposed labour reforms.

Among the front-runners of the protest was Jean-Luc Melenchon, leader of the leftist party France Insoumise. Melenchon was there in support of the protest against the President and to gain steam for a planned grand protest that will be held in Paris on May 5.

He also commented on the Syria strikes led by the US, UK and France, saying: “The President of the Republic says he has proofs that Assad’s government used chemicals weapons then he has to show proof. I remember of the weapons we were supposed to find in Iraq. Nobody found them.”
