PROTESTS: The demonstrators against the pension reform were 300 at the height of the evening in Paris, 600 in Lyon and nearly a thousand in Lille
Emmanuel Macron has not calmed the protests against the pension reform. While the Head of State spoke at 1 p.m. on Wednesday to confirm in particular the application of the text “before the end of the year”, in the evening spontaneous strolls by a few hundred people took place in several cities. The gatherings, therefore, continue every evening for almost a week, but the incidents this time have been limited.
According to the authorities, the demonstrators were 300 at the height of the evening in Paris, 600 in Lyon, and nearly a thousand in Lille where a police source reported two arrests for damage and two police officers slightly injured. In Lyon, street furniture was damaged and used to block traffic on the banks of the Rhône.
This Thursday, the trade unions will demonstrate as part of a 9th day of strikes and mobilizations.
