Toulouse: showmen carry out snail operations on the ring road

the essential
Since 3 p.m., around sixty trucks have been slowing down traffic on the inner and outer Toulouse ring road.

Here we go again ! This Monday afternoon, the showmen continue their movement, which began last Friday, by carrying out new snail operations on the inner and outer ring road. About 60 trucks are disrupting traffic. The procession left around 3 p.m. from the Toulouse-Nord toll booth and split into two convoys. One has gone towards the inner ring road, the other takes care of the outside. Disruptions on road traffic are to be expected until 7 p.m. “We are sorry to take the people of Toulouse hostage but demonstrating is the only way to be heard”, apologize the showmen.

They are demonstrating against “the inaction of the town hall of Toulouse” to find a location for the Saint-Michel festival, which was originally to open this Friday, September 24. The Fédération des Forains de France sent a letter to the City to bring together the mayor, Jean-Luc Moudenc and the prefect of Haute-Garonne, Etienne Guyot. Without progress in the negotiations, the fairgrounds will demonstrate again this Wednesday.
