Several hundred yellow vests took advantage of Act 63 to shout their “rage” and denounce the pension reform in the streets of Toulouse, Saturday January 25, 2020.
As they are used to continuously since November 2019, several hundred yellow vests marched through the streets of downtown Toulouse on Saturday January 25, 2020, from 2 p.m. This act 63 of the movement had been placed under the sign of withdrawal of the pension reform bill.

Repressed to the courthouse…
Deprived of the Capitol by order of the prefect, following the tags and clashes recorded last week, some tried to approach the courthouse, but were quickly prevented by mobile gendarmes, positioned in number, near Place du Salin.

The procession then flowed back to the city center, still chanting slogans and songs hostile to Emmanuel Macron. A protester was carrying a sign displaying large, two “broken mouths”, presented as victims of LBD (defense bullet throwers). Another: “Rather Acabland rather than Dysneyland”.
On the windows, posters crossed out with a “Under the cobblestones, rage” hastily glued alongside those praising the sales.

… Then at Matabiau
After a stop at Arnaud-Bernard, around 4 p.m., the demonstrators gathered in Place Saint-Georges, smoothly. They were blocked before reaching Matabiau station where they wanted to go, around 5 p.m.
The first shots of tear gas dispersed the procession. It is not known at this time whether the injured have been counted or the arrests made. “The rage of the people will overcome”. In any case, one of its fringes does not disarm.
