‘RIP restaurant industry’: Protesters in Paris stage mock funeral after bars & cafés ordered to close AGAIN
Parisian restaurant and bar workers have taken to the streets carrying a mock coffin, an expression of their anger at new Covid-19 restrictions, which they say will kill off the whole industry.
At a rally organized by the local trade association in the French capital on Thursday, the protesters staged the mock funeral procession with the words “Bars - restaurants - clubs” written on the coffin.
Others held up a sign “Restaurant industry 1686-2020, RIP,” referring to the year when the first café-type business was opened in Paris. Some of the protesters have been seen brandishing smoke flares.
The activists denounced what they called “the killing of our sector by the government.” A manager at one endangered establishment told local media that the new restrictions would hit the whole industry badly. “After going through a particularly difficult year and three months of closure, we are once-again forced to close for at least two weeks. It’s the death of our business, in a way,” he lamented.
