While the strike is in full swing in transport, no question for LREM activists to give up their tying sessions on the Paris markets, in view of municipal. But on the ground this week, the issues are mostly about pension reform.

"Long live the strike!" On the Richard Lenoir market, in Paris, some slogans resonate on the passage of the LREM militants came to tow for the municipal. Some slogans, but no tension, despite a very consistent strike in transport and several black days that are still announced in the capital.


"I have not had any complaints about what the government proposes," says Olivier, a package of leaflets in hand. No reproaches, but questions, about the method of the government among others. "What I do not understand is brutality ... 'Negotiating' means listening to the other," says Jean-Pierre, a former trade unionist. A little further, Françoise, herself retired, regrets a lack of dialogue. "If I were in office, I would say that adaptation is needed, not brutal reform."

But Pacôme Rupin, head of LREM list and support of Benjamin Griveaux to municipal, does not see in these criticisms a rejection of the pension reform project. "People, what they want most of all, is that the method is good and that it does not have a loser.The current system is unfair and too complicated." In this Parisian market, it was still time for dialogue Sunday ... a position that could change if the conflict were to become tougher in the coming days.
