Many press cartoonists share their art on Twitter to comment on the news with their biting humour. On the program of the press review: the anger of bakers and the debate on pension reform.
On Monday January 23, many bakers took to the streets in Paris to express their anger at the rise in energy prices. Coming from the four corners of France, these craftsmen are suffering and marched through the capital to challenge the government. Reminiscent of another moment in French history: when citizens went to Versailles during the French Revolution, as one cartoonist pointed out (see slideshow).
Another moment in the news: the televised debate, broadcast this Tuesday, January 24 on BFMTV, around the pension reform. Government spokesman Olivier Véran was opposed to the president of the National Rally, Jordan Bardella, and the Insoumise Mathilde Panot to defend the executive’s bill. Among his statements, the ex-minister of health said about the legal retirement age, which should increase to 64 years. “I don’t think women will be penalized.” A sentence that caused a reaction in public opinion and on social networks.
Also in the summary: several Western countries have announced that they will deliver tanks for Ukraine in the war against Russia. Still internationally, France will withdraw its troops from Burkina Faso. Discover the best cartoons of the week in the slideshow.
