Since the emergence of the hashtag #rassageparis in March 2021, the movement opposed to the management ofAnne Hidalgo took root as a daily observer of Paris. Sunday October 10, 2021, a demonstration is called, on the forecourt of the Hôtel de Ville, by the Union Parisienne (UP75), association born from the meeting of local residents’ collectives. For the occasion, they commissioned a survey from theIfop, which is in line with their demands.
Refusal of neglect of public space
The event is scheduled for Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m. and should not leave the forecourt of the Town Hall, under the windows of the Parisian elected officials of the central town hall.
The demonstrators have listed, in a jumble, their sorrows against the municipality led by the socialist Anne Hidalgo, re-elected in 2020. The refusal of “neglect of public space”, at the origin of the #saccageparis movement , in a capital in the midst of a metamorphosis, is globally the theme most represented in the claims. The opposition to the consumption rooms of crack and the demand for “fairness in the respect of the highway code”.

Paris is dirty, #saccageparis is on the right, details a poll
For this day of mobilization, the Union Parisienne association called on Ifop. This polling institute asked a thousand people interviewed online at the end of August, what they thought of the cleanliness of Paris. Representative of the age-old population, according to Ifop, they estimated at 84% that “Paris is a dirty city”, and 39% believe that it is “very dirty”.
Figures put into perspective with those collected since 1974, under the Giscardian right, which declares “a return to the situation observed in the 1970s”, sums up Ifop. Before the end of Jacques Chirac’s mandate in 1991, 53% of Parisians considered the city dirty.
In 2021, the fight against incivility, cleanliness and the fight against rats are the podium of sorrows expressed by those polled. Making the dirt collectors pay, increasing the staff dedicated to cleanliness and increasing the number of bins in the street are the three preferred responses. In April, the cleaning assistant Colombe Brossel detailed to news Paris the measures taken to deal with these problems, in particular with doubled emergency teams.
The poll underlines that “67% of Parisians (interviewed, editor’s note) reported the hashtag #scageparis”. Among these supporters, the opinions differ according to the electorate: 42% of the voters of Anne Hidalgo (PS) have a favorable opinion on the movement, 85% at Rachida Dati.
