Coronavirus: Shopkeepers get naked on social networks to protest against containment

Faced with the new confinement following the second wave of the coronavirus, traders have found an original way to express their anger.

Even though progress has been made and a vaccine developed by Pfizer and BioNTech laboratories that is 90% effective against Covid-19 has recently been announced, the measures put in place by the government are continuing and continue to affect millions of French. Among them, artisans and traders who protest against the insufficient amount of aid granted by the government in the face of the crisis they are undergoing. To shake things up and get the public’s attention, some have decided to get naked – literally – by posting photos of themselves and their business on social media with the hashtag #artisanapoil.



An original way of highlighting the vulnerability of many businesses considered non-essential and therefore closed indefinitely. After a difficult first pass in the spring, the second wave of the epidemic affecting France continues to put many companies at risk , some of which are not sure they will have a chance of escaping bankruptcy. It remains to be seen whether this gesture will really attract the attention of the government, which must face more and more protests concerning the new confinement announced by Emmanuel Macron and the measures that accompany it. From the world of catering to hairdressing through clothing, all sectors are hard hit and have not finished making their anger heard.
