Most Parisians say their city is dirty, according to a poll conducted by Ifop and commissioned by the Union Parisienne. This led to a demonstration on the Sunday following the poll, to denounce the conditions in which the city finds itself.
The Union Parisienne has called for a demonstration in front of the Paris town hall. They were joined by sympathizers from the movement called #SaccageParis. According to them, the management of the city by the current administration is bad, whether in terms of public facilities or in terms of filth.
The poll commissioned by the Union Parisienne and which appears in the Journal du Dimanche shows that 84% of Parisians find their city dirty. In addition, 73% of Parisians feel they are unhappy with the maintenance and cleanliness of the French capital.
What shocks city dwellers the most are the sanitary masks thrown to the ground. The cleanest neighborhoods are in the west of the city. Dirt is more present in the densest and most popular boroughs. For example, in the northeast of the city, 90% of residents consider the city to be dirty. While in upscale neighborhoods, this percentage drops to 74%.
39% of Parisians even consider the city to be very dirty. With the problem of full bins that are not emptied regularly enough by city services.
The town hall replied that there would be greater severity towards people who litter and degrade public space. The mayor of Paris will also launch the Paris municipal police which will lead a fierce fight against incivility.
