France: Parisian health workers stage dancing protest for better working conditions

Health workers of Paris Robert Debre Hospital gathered in the French capital on Thursday as part of their weekly 'Thursdays of Anger' protest calling on better working conditions. Health workers were joined by the Rosies, a group launched by ATTAC (Association for the taxation of financial transactions and for civic action) to defend women's rights. Protesters were seen dancing, marching, playing drums and chanting slogans to voice their demands, which include pay raise, more resources and staff hiring. «We don't have time. There are too many patients, too much work, we are facing additional work without being given more staff, without being given equipment. We are fed up, we can't take it anymore,» said Robert Debre Hospital nurse Laure. In recent weeks, health care professionals have re-engaged in long-standing battles across France with the government in order to demand changes and measures which they say would make it easier to work amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
