Paris Olympics 2024: Why Are Paris Locals Threatening To Poop In The Seine River?

Paris Olympics 2024: The city of Paris is getting the honour of hosting the Olympics this time around, as Olympics 2024 will be taking place in the capital of France. However, due to the ongoing issues in the city, the locals have threatened to poop in the Siene River during the Olympics 2024. This is so because the people of the city have been constantly complaining regarding the deteriorating quality of the water in the river.

 

What Does The Hashtag JeChieDansLaSeineLe23Juin Means?

Nowadays, the hashtag #JeChieDansLaSeineLe23Juin is going viral and the hashtag’s translation in English means “I s**t in the Siene on June 23”. The motive of the French people in the city of Paris via this hashtag was evidently clear, as they aimed to swim in and poop in the river on June 23.

 

Why Locals Of Paris Chose June 23 As The Occasion To Poop In The Siene River?

The reason behind choosing June 23 as the date to poop in the Siene river was because French President Emmanuel Macron and Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo had earlier declared to swim in the Siene on the same day, thereby, justifying their ‘claimed’ fact that the river is absolutely clean. However, their plans took a hit after the occasion of French President was postponed until further notice.

 

Will The French Government Clean Siene River In Time Before ‘Traithlon’?

The French Government had planned to clean the Siene River by declaring an expenditure of 1.5 Billion Euros for the process. This rattled the Paris Locals and therefore, this decision led them to protest by deciding to poop in the river. Siene river has seen extremely poor quality of water as of late and Paris region official Marc Guillaume announced at a press conference that the Seine is still too polluted, which ultimately became the reason for President Macron to delay his swim in the river.

Triathlon is scheduled to take place between July 30 and 31, where, the athletes will swim 1.5 km in the Seine River. The process needs to be speeded up in time, as the threat of the event ‘Triathlon’ being called off by the officials looms over the Paris Olympics 2024 event and if that happens to be the case, it will bring immense shame on the country.
