Entrepreneurs protest in Toulouse against quarantine measures in France

In late October, against the backdrop of a pandemic in France, the lockdown regime began to operate again. Within its framework, residents of the country are given only one hour every day to go shopping or see a doctor or take a walk within a radius of no more than one kilometer from their home. At the same time, schools and kindergartens remain open. Lockdown does not apply to some sectors of the economy, for example, construction.

On November 6, in Toulouse, representatives of sectors of the economy deemed “insignificant” and therefore closed for the lockdown period, protested massively against quarantine measures. To draw attention to their plight, they dressed in black and lay down on the ground, holding black umbrellas above them.

The “health emergency” declared by the government in mid-October is expected to last until at least 16 February.
