Thursday, March 23, in one evening, the movement protesting the pension reform took on a new face. So far, processions have been firmly supervised by responsible and experienced unions. The French had taken to the streets to express their disagreement, the atmosphere was resolute, the determination flawless, nothing was to be condemned. One could hardly be indignant to hear here and there the slogans of some who, confusing everything, asserted that, since we were living in a dictatorship, it was necessary to erect scaffolds in the Place de la Concorde. Punctual excesses and so little representative of the rest of the demonstrators.
