Creative protesters in France: “If you don’t understand us when we speak, then we’ll sing!”

In 2023, many people took to the streets in France. They were protesting President Emmanuel Macron’s pension reforms. Hundreds of thousands of people demonstrated for weeks, and some brought the protest to life by dancing and singing.

Mathilde, Les Rosies, and Lauren see their dance and music to get people excited about politics. They want to create a positive environment so that people feel safe to take to the streets and keep the flame alive.

@vdnews_ita traveled to Paris and spoke to the artists about their form of protest.
