Originally a driver protest against gaz taxes rises, then the protest took broader claims against cost of life, cost cuts on hospitals and public services in periurban spaces and countryside.
& LABOUR LAW
Spring 2016, Paris. In heavy context of terrorist attacks, state of emergency and far-right threat, French government decided a labour law reform. It was met with significant public opposition and became a catalyst for strikes and demonstrations organised by trades unions and student groups. At the same time an Occupy-like movement known as Nuit Debout arose within the context of opposition to the legislation. Clashes between police and protesters quickly reached a level of violence unseen for decades.
