The French Democratic Confederation of Labor (CFDT) of the European country, through its Twitter account, described the festive day, unitary and family, "an exceptional May 1st on Avignon in the face of 64 years of recognition of the world of work".

Meanwhile, the general secretary of the General Confederation of Labor (CGT), Sophie Binet, considered it important to make the message of rejection of the rule that extends the retirement age from 62 to 64 years heard and urged to win the battle against the reform . "Come en masse, the May 1 demonstration is also a popular party," she said.

On the other hand, the CFDT reported that "this May 1st about fifty foreign trade unionists came to express their solidarity with the social movement against said reform."

They also affirmed that this mobilization "is a great gift that the French unions have given to workers throughout Europe, and a great lesson in fighting spirit."

This mobilization constitutes the thirteenth national day of union demonstrations, since the first one on January 19, against the new retirement law that will come into force throughout this year in France.
