BBC:" Demonstrations took place in over 40 cities across the country" Actually it was over 100 cities and towns.
So very unsourced low quality news info from the BBC.
Trying to make it look smaller BBC?

The more Macron try to be a tough man the more ridiculous he looks. It’s like to watch a baby who is sacking his dummy at the same time try to be Arnold Schwarzenegger.
