After five straight weeks of disturbing and sometimes violent protests over France, the police take a trip expressing anger at the French government.

Two police federations complained Monday about working conditions and what they said were strenuous resources that officials have been sent to clear roadblocks and to check troublemakers on street demonstrations bent to provoke them.

Alliance unions called on the government to invest in building the country’s police forces while calling for a decline in work Wednesday to protest planned cuts in the national police budget.

Another union, the UNSA police said that its members would only provide mini-service Tuesday and asked for a meeting with France’s president Emmanuel Macron. The union asked the government earlier this month for the payment of overtime officials who put in action against the protests.

“The police are not doing well and no one is listening,” said Frederic Lagache of the Alliance Union.

The Lagers Union said that French legislators will vote for EUR 62 million ($ 70 million) in budget cuts this week, which “will again result in downgraded working conditions” if they are approved.

Alliance encourages police forces to stay in their stations on Wednesday and only to answer emergency calls.

The Alliance said that French legislators should vote against the government’s 2019 budget and warn that “other actions will be implemented” about President Emmanuel Macron “not soon announcing a Marshall plan for the national police.”

The protests of the “yellow west” , named after the fluorescent safety vests French motorists must wear, started last month over rising fuel prices. They have then turned into a massive dissatisfaction involving retirees, people without work and small business owners.

The UNSA Union threatened Monday to imitate yellow vests protests and to raise rounds if the requirements were not met.

“The roundabouts are not reserved only for yellow vests,” said the union in a statement. UNSA said.
