There have already been clashes between activists and law enforcement.

A massive demonstration is taking place this Sunday in Paris in rejection of the “high cost of living”, reports the local press.

The protesters demand an increase in salaries, the freezing of electricity prices, food and investment in renewable energy sources.

In the protests, the first clashes between activists and the security forces have already been registered, who had to resort to tear gas to disperse the activists.

The organizers assure that 140.00 0 people participate in the demonstration on this day, while the Police expected that only a few 30.0000 activists attend the call.

“Employers believed they could play with rot and oppose one another. What is most important is the unity of the people themselves who do not allow themselves to be divided by their skin color, their religion, political affiliation or indifference,” said the president of the France Insumisa Group, Jean-Luc Mélenchon, one of the organizers of the protest.
