Activists Outside Notre Dame Demand the Homeless Get ‘a Roof Too’

On Monday, Protesters gathered outside the gutted Notre Dame in Paris to demand that France’s poor be remembered too, after $1 billion was pledged to rebuild the cathedral and its roof after being destroyed by fire.

Advocacy groups gathered with placards reading “1 billion in 24 hours.” They chanted slogans directed at billionaires who have pledged hundreds of millions of euros to repair the cathedral.


Some chanted “Notre Dame needs a roof, we need a roof too!” on the central Paris island where Notre Dame is located.
