Gilets jaunes fail to disrupt Macron's visit

France 3/Scoop, Jan 17

Emmanuel Macron was visiting Toulouse on Thursday, to present to the military at Francazal base south-west of Toulouse.

The president’s plane landed at 2:45pm. Thanks to a vast area which had been secured since the morning, the gilets jaunes were unable to get through, despite their attempts.

About 50 union militants gathered at the edge of the zone to challenge the president on the issue of SMIC and wages, and they were joined by a group of gilets jaunes.

The mayor of Toulouse, Jean-Luc Moudenc took advantage of the visit to give the president a proposal from Toulouse merchants who are asking for support to deal with the damage related to the gilets jaunes protests.

Macron travels to Souillac, Lot on Friday for his meeting with all the mayors from Occitanie.
