More than a hundred associations, media and unions called for a new rally on Thursday June 27 in Paris. It will include concerts and speaking engagements, and many personalities will be expected there.

The deadline for the first round of the legislative elections is approaching and the mobilizations continue. Three days before the election, the Place de la République in Paris will be the scene on Thursday June 27 at 6 p.m. of a gathering at the initiative of more than 100 organizations, including several media outlets, including Humanity, MediapartVert or Political. Unions will also be present there under the flags of the CGT and CFDT, among others, as will NGOs such as Nous Tous, Greenpeace, the Confédération Paysanne, Reporter Sans Frontière or the Human Rights League. Together, organizers call on citizens: “together, let’s block the road to the RN”.

Beautiful people are expected at this gathering: actresses Judith Godrèche and Anna Mouglalis, director Alice Diop, activist Camille Etienne and comedian Aymeric Lompret, who recently left France Inter. Concerts and speaking engagements are planned, and the event will be streamed for its entire duration, until 11 p.m.

In their call for the rally, the organizers emphasize that a far-right government would endanger the “freedoms in the plural because the RN will attack all of them if unfortunately it comes to power”. They still write that “blocking the road to the RN means opening new paths to hope, in a peaceful and pluralistic public space, with redoubled attention to solidarity”.

On Sunday June 23, several organizations and unions behind Thursday’s mobilization had already gathered several thousand demonstrators at Place de la République in Paris. During this demonstration, which had a more particularly feminist angle, many of them expressed their concerns about the future of the rights of women and LGBT + people under a potential far-right government. “We see it elsewhere in the world, in Poland, Argentina, Russia, the far right is calling into question the right of women to control their bodies. These dangerous ideas must not rise to power in France.” Marylise Léon, general secretary of the CFDT, insisted.
