IDemonstrations rekindled on Thursday to protest against the pension reform. With 49.3 and the words of Emmanuel Macron well in mind, the demonstrators were still able to show their imagination for their slogans to be chanted or written on the signs. Since the beginning of the rallies, these slogans have evolved, compared to previous mobilizations. References to the humor of social networks, musical nods, parallels with May 68… Here is an anthology.
If some signs have evolved, others remain on safe values. The references written on the boxes are often, and logically, linked to the age of their owner.
In recent months, feminist slogans have also taken place in processions.
Feminist fight, fight against pension reform… Both can fit on a single slogan.
While some try to be imaginative, others preferred to be direct. Many signs are on this model in processions.

Literary and/or cinematographic references are not forgotten. Here, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and Star Wars side by side.
Another art: song. Essential for the atmosphere in demonstration, the texts of these songs are sometimes written on the signs, readjusted for the occasion.
IT references are also flourishing.
For several demonstrations, the nods to May 68 are multiplying.
