Protest against fuel prices

Protest against fuel prices - Taxi and VTC drivers are demonstrating across France and in Marseille today in protest against the rise in petrol prices. More than a hundred drivers have met this Monday morning in Marseille to express their dissatisfaction. Many consider themselves to be largely forgotten by the economic and social resilience plan presented by the French government a few days ago to deal with the consequences of the war in Ukraine. Protests are expected to last all day. A renewable strike notice of 4 days was filed by the drivers. However, no blocking action is planned within Marseille itself.
