(Vendôme) Emmanuel Macron was welcomed by a concert of pans on Tuesday afternoon in Vendôme (Loir-et-Cher), where several hundred demonstrators were kept away from the presidential visit, according to journalists from the AFP.

The president arrived around 2 p.m. at the city’s multidisciplinary university health center (MSPU), in a district cordoned off by an important security device to keep the demonstrators at a distance.

Several hundred protesters of the pension reform, equipped with saucepans and other tin cans or trumpets, had gathered in the middle of the day along a railway line near the nursing home, where they began their ” casserole” in a good-natured atmosphere.

Shortly before the arrival of the presidential convoy, they invaded the tracks while some of them joined a police roadblock closer to the nursing home.

Bruno Vivien, retired from metallurgy, came with his little bugle. “It’s to wake up our president, so that he stops making fun of us,” he told an AFP correspondent.

Upon arrival, Mr. Macron chatted with several staff members as well as a few patients who were waiting for their appointments.

The Loir-et-Cher prefecture had published an order setting up a protective perimeter and providing in particular for the prohibition of processions and protest rallies near the nursing home, as well as “the prohibition of sound amplifiers sound devices “.

Several associations, including the League of Human Rights (LDH), have seized the administrative court of Orleans to challenge the decree of the prefect of Loir-et-Cher, we learned from the court, confirming information from France Bleu Orléans.

The court clarified that the interim freedom of associations was examined at the beginning of the afternoon. “The hearing has just ended. We don’t have the result yet,” the same source said.

According to France Bleu, in addition to the LDH, the appeal was filed by an association for the defense of constitutional freedoms and the French lawyers’ union (SAF) who believe that the prefectural decree “is a misappropriation of the law strengthening internal security and the fight against terrorism”.

The Head of State, accompanied by the Minister of Health François Braun, must discuss with the nursing staff on “the problems of access to care, attractiveness of the profession and training”, specified the Elysée, in a context of growing medical desertification in the territory.
