France pension reform: 5th day of mobilisation before a still hypothetical vote in the Assembly


"We believe in the withdrawal of this reform": With fewer but still determined demonstrators, the unions mobilised on Thursday for the fifth time against the pension reform project to maintain the pressure on the deputies, who still hope to be able to debate the legal age by midnight on Friday thanks to the withdrawal of numerous amendments. In the middle of school holidays, with the exception of the Ile-de-France and Occitania regions, the mobilisation is expected to decrease. FRANCE 24's James Andre reports from the  Bastille in Paris, the site of the start of today's protest march.

  • France strikes: 10th day of nationwide protests over pension reform plan

    France's controversial pension reform law may have already been forced through parliament, but public anger here over the move to push the retirement age from 62 to 64 is still palpable. Protest marches are planned across the country today, with police on high alert for more potential violence like the kind that broke out at the last rallies over the weekend. One of the most visible signs of the protests have been the mounds of garbage piling up in cities across France as trash collectors continue their strike. France 24's Clovis Casali reports from an incinerator is the town of Ivry, east of Paris.
