Passing by the prison of Sante, the protesters demanded: "Free our comrades!" From the inside they were answered with a roar of saucepans. There were shouts: "Justice is nowhere, the police are everywhere," "What is the police doing? It pokes out its eyes," "Revolution, revolution!", "Castaner on the bench!"

At 14.10, the advancement of the demonstrators was again stopped by police vans. People are outraged: "We are not sheep, so that we were stopped!", "This is the end of the Enlightenment!", "Everything will take off into the air!". At 14.20 near the square of Italy: a new stop! ...

This opinion was expressed on July 27 by President Emmanuel Macron. A report on his communication with journalists and residents of Bormes-les-Mimosas, located next to the summer presidential residence, Fort Bregancon, showed the BFM channel.

"In our country, the deep-seated problems that have long been known to us, caused by the existing[social]injustice and economic difficulties of the population," continue to remain unresolved, the president acknowledged. Answering the question about the situation with the protests of the "yellow vests", he said: "I absolutely do not think that what caused the sincere rage of a part of the French population at some point now no longer exists." "In my opinion, we were able to answer some of the problems - but at the same time, there are some unresolved issues that we couldn't take due measures, as this takes time.
