'March of Anger': French police demand better conditions

Thousands of French police officers marched through the streets of Paris on Wednesday (October 2), protesting against poor working conditions and anti-police hostility.

Demonstrators marched from Place de la Bastille to Place de la Republique in response to growing anti-police sentiment linked to the "yellow vest" protests, a wave of suicides and proposed pension reforms. Frederic Lagache is a spokesman for the French Police Union Alliance, and says they want concrete action... (SOUNDBITE) (French) REPRESENTATIVE OF FRENCH POLICE UNION ALLIANCE, FREDERIC LAGACHE, SAYING: "It's the daily life of police officers that continues to be alarming - the resources, the vehicles, the police prefectures, the penal procedures, and last of all, the attacks on our pensions.

It's unacceptable that we work until the age of 65 and run after thieves until we're 65.

All we want is respect, consideration, and that beyond words, we see concrete actions." It's the first police strike in France since 2001, and comes as President Emmanuel Macron prepares to launch major pension reforms, which police say they will lose out from.
