The call was launched a few days ago on social networks. This Saturday, a regional rally called "24 hours against Macron, Darmanin and fascism" will be held in Rennes. In addition to the law on pensions, now adopted, the collectives at the origin of the movement also intend to denounce the rise of the far right in the country, taking as an example the recent events in Saint-Brevin-les-Pins (Loire-Atlantique) where the mayor resigned after months of intimidation and the burning of his home.

"It was not until the resignation of Yannick Morez that the state deigned to react without really pointing the finger at the far right," denounces La Maison du Peuple, Rennes ultra-left collective on its Twitter account. The first rally is scheduled for 14 p.m. at Place de la République before a second announced for 16 p.m. on the Esplanade de Gaulle.

A concert by rapper Millésime K in the evening

In the evening, protesters also planned to cancel the concert of controversial rapper Millésime K who is to perform in Rennes in a location still kept secret. "The words of Millésime K clearly incite violence, so it is necessary to stop it," says a petition signed Rennes vs Darmanin. This collective had already organized a demonstration on April 29 in Rennes against the immigration bill and the deportation operation in Mayotte that had gathered about 500 people.

Fearing overflows during the day, the prefecture of Ille-et-Vilaine took Thursday an order to prohibit the wearing of fireworks mortars and dangerous substances.
