One of the largest firefighters unions, FA SPP-PATS, took around 1,400 people to the streets of the French capital to protest lack of professional recognition, staff shortages, and poor working conditions. Protesters with flares staged a die-in, blocking one of the roads for around 15 minutes. They marched the city streets with colorful flags and were joined by police officers and nurses, who face the same problems according to the activists.
