‘RIP restaurant industry’: Protesters in Paris stage mock funeral after bars & cafés ordered to close AGAIN

category international | rights, freedoms and repression | other press author Tuesday October 13, 2020 14:24author by foody Report this post to the editors

Parisian restaurant and bar workers have taken to the streets carrying a mock coffin, an expression of their anger at new Covid-19 restrictions, which they say will kill off the whole industry. At a rally organized by the local trade association in the French capital on Thursday, the protesters staged the mock funeral procession with the words “Bars – restaurants – clubs” written on the coffin.Others held up a sign “Restaurant industry 1686-2020, RIP,” referring to the year when the first café-type business was opened in Paris. Some of the protesters have been seen brandishing smoke flares.

The activists denounced what they called “the killing of our sector by the government.” A manager at one endangered establishment told local media that the new restrictions would hit the whole industry badly. “After going through a particularly difficult year and three months of closure, we are once-again forced to close for at least two weeks. It’s the death of our business, in a way,” he lamented. Full story https://www.rt.com/news/503029-paris-bars-cafes-protest/ https://twitter.com/i/status/1314266987862908929
