We are in 2018.» Around 50 elected officials spent the night on the streets of the French capital of Paris on Wednesday night, after the deputy mayor of Etampes Mama Sy called on elected officials to stand in solidarity with the city's homeless population. «It is out of the question that on Sunday the 6,000 person who had been sheltered, will go back to the streets,» Sy said, calling on the government to find a solution. After being asked if the move made him happy, a homeless person said to the media: «What would make me happy would be the result to come after that. Because I count on you, I count on our politics in power,» adding that he wouldn't mind squatting outside with French President Emmanuel Macron himself if that meant the he could feel their misery. 'Plan Grand Froid' (the Great Cold Plan) provides shelter for homeless people when the weather hits uncommonly low temperatures. Mama Sy and the rest of the deputies are calling for this plan to be extended.
