the essential
Successful mobilization for trade union organizations and certain political parties who marched this , May 1, 2024 in for Labor Day.

Despite the and the squalls, the Tarn-et-Garonnais were indeed there for this Labor Day. This Wednesday, May 1, the union organizations met at 10 a.m. in front of the Maison du peuple, in Montauban. Quite a symbol since the town hall decided, in 2020, to decommission this building which had hosted the main unions since “the post-war period”, recalls Sébastien Duron, general secretary of the CGT 82 in front of the comrades of FO, FSU, Solidaires , the SNES, PCF or even the NPA and LFI. “We always plan to return to this historic place which is not Ms. Barèges’ house, even if she wishes to sell it to a private party! The proceedings and the fight are still ongoing. Because no, Ms. Barèges, you don’t do what you want in Montauban, or anywhere else! », says Sébastien Duron.

Sébastien Duron specified that the CGT 82 “continues the fight” to return to the House of the People.

Referral to an execution judge

In the ranks, despite sometimes adventurous management of the umbrella, the applause is loud. “We have contacted an enforcement judge to request additional time. We had found a new premises on Avenue Hammecher which the town hall had pre-empted. For the moment, for the first time since 1930, the UD CGT no longer has premises made available in Tarn-et-Garonne,” regrets Christophe Couderc, the secretary for protest policy, whose team still occupies the premises of rue d’Albert, where the CGT 82 is threatened with expulsion.

“We are asking for a law to carry out our missions in a democratic state. This falls under constitutional law and we are recognized as being in the public interest,” insists Christophe Couderc as the speeches follow one another.

The mobilization began with several speeches in front of the People's House.

The reform of unemployment insurance, of the civil service, the general increase in wages, “state authoritarianism”, but also, the war in which many describe as “genocide”: the subjects discussed are also serious that many. Then the procession sets off, determined to make itself heard. According to the police, 250 demonstrators “at most” were present. A great mobilization which did not suffer from any incident.
