After a week’s break in France, resumed mass protests against labor reforms and austerity, which runs the country’s President, Emmanuel macron. The policy, which has been criticized for an authoritarian style of management, is accused of attempting «coup d’etat in the social sphere». Macron really cut costs a number of departments, reduced the place in the public sector, facilitated the process of firing employees and shifted the tax burden onto the shoulders of pensioners. The ultra-confident that the reforms the French will have to «work more to get less.» Public opinion, according to polls, supports the protesters.

The organizers of the protests — the activists of the oldest in France (and historically associated with the Communist party) trade Union CGT. The Union leader Philippe Martinez has in the success of the movement of direct interest. If the Macron reforms are undertaken, the role of trade unions in the economic life of France will be reduced. In some companies the employees and the employer will be able to do without them. Martinez is confident that this relationship will lead to discrimination against people of labor: internal agreements at enterprises can be set right, not acceptable to many children, elderly and other socially vulnerable. Stressing this, the boss of the CGT seeks to preserve the integrity of your institution.

Other protesters believe that the Makron encroaches on their budget, wants to deprive of money or work. Since taking office, the President seeks to minimize any costs that appear to be him, for all existing areas. In the summer, with the sequestration of its funds faced by the armed forces, which has led to loud scandal: just approved by the of office of the chief of the General staff Pierre de Villiers, defiantly resigned. At the same time deteriorated the relations of the President with the women’s movement: an optional macron considered some of the costs of maintaining gender equality.

Budget savings in the performance of Macron entails the actual risk of job loss for the most disadvantaged, since the number of redundant got jobs in the social sector in small towns. Macron canceled paid at the minimum rate of employment of social assistants deliver books to seniors. In defense of the workers assigned to the staff of municipalities, stood municipalities. In protest, 21 September, stopped working 150 municipalities in the area of Pas-de-Calais — a region where zashkalivalo high support for the National front.

Let them eat cake

«I don’t want to be poor»: the French are protesting against the Makron© RIA Novosti / Galina to Aswapati in fotobanka unity: the largest mass demonstration in history Frenziedly many French people participating in the rallies, the protests — is an occasion to Express disagreement with the management style, learned from the time of his election, Emmanuel macron. Polls show that dissatisfied many: the approval of the head of state was reduced from 60% to 37% within three months. Makron accused of arrogance, disrespect for the unsecured part of society and going beyond their authority. In the past a favorite of the press, the President has spoiled relations with her after making several hard-hitting statements about journalists.

As it turned out, the combination of social disrespect and rudeness in circulation pushes Macron unexpected escapades. In the summer when you visit one of the French stations, the head of state fell upon the poor, whom he saw around him. «The station is a place where people, something achieved in life, meet with those who have not achieved anything,» snapped the President, which caused an uproar among the leftists.

From the point of view of the Macron, in his social policy we are talking about the principle. One of the political allies of de facto President — the mayor of Bordeaux Alain Juppe — being in 1995 of the Prime Minister, refused economic reforms under pressure from mass protests. Macron, who appointed Juppe pupil of Edouard Philippe for his Prime Minister, said that on concessions will not go. The President believes that he received a mandate to reform society, challenge which the demonstrators can’t, no matter how they may have gathered. «Democracy is not done on the street,» — said the head of state believes that this — for him the conversation was over.
