"Go in groups"

They are protesting against a report on the transidentification of minors drawn up by the LR group in the Senate, which according to them could mark the return of conversion therapies. The publication of the book Transmania, accused of attacking transgender people, was also denounced.

"Leave in groups, because the security conditions are no longer met from now on", launched the organizers at the end of the sit-in.
