1,000 City Protest Movement

Here to stay

They’re peaceful, non-political protesters, who simply want to get their message across. But they’re infuriating governments all over the world. What’s more, a leading French sociologist tells FRANCE 24, the “indignant” movement is here to stay.

On Saturday, it just got bigger. “United for Global Change” protesters took to the streets of almost 1,000 cities around the world to denounce what they describe as “an intolerable situation” for young people in the financial crisis. “We will peacefully demonstrate, talk and organise until we make it happen,” reads the website. And they mean it.
