France: Thousands gather to stop Macron’s reforms in Marseilles
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.”
