Trade unions hold Paris protest ​against government’s coronavirus recovery plan

France, Paris

Ruptly is live from Paris on Thursday, September 17, as protesters hit the streets following a call made by the General Confederation of Labour (CGT ) to protest against the ‘historic’ €100 billion coronavirus stimulus plan to restart the economy. Head of CGT Philippe Martinez faulted recently the government for apparently failing to agree on promises to save jobs with companies involved in the stimulus package.

The protest comes after tear gas was deployed as 'Yellow Vest' protesters flooded the French capital for the first time after the coronavirus lockdown on Saturday.
