Whistles or even motorcycle horns sounded along the road for almost 3 km. The signs read: “No to France”, “France is coming out”.
Hundreds of high school students joined the procession, perched on motorcycles. The procession even tried to pass the roundabout where the march would end. But some tear gas canisters forced them to withdraw.
In the end, no one spoke out because of the crowd, but Wakit Tama’s spokesman said he was proud of the mobilization. I Max Loalngar: “What happened warmed our hearts. We thought we were crazy. This is the first time we have had so many rallies. There were traders, associations, but you also saw that my brothers in the north were perhaps more than we who wear trousers, but the Chadian people as a whole were there.
At the end of the demonstration, groups of young people attacked several Total stations across the capital.
