The executive branch, which suffered the first massive waves against the pension bill, may this time face a wave of anger across the country, according to Le Figaro.
Analysts at the expert center Place Beauvau predict that between 1 and 1.4 million people will take to the streets of France on Tuesday. Thus, on March 7, it will be possible to exceed the peak of the protest registered during the anti-government actions of the autumn of 2010. “The protest promises to be massive and exceed the record protest against the pension reform of January 31,” said a senior official of the government.
It was previously reported that some unions in France have vowed to “stop the country” by blocking the movement of planes, trains, subways and road transport, as well as causing damage to schools, ports, oil refineries and other industrial sectors. Unions are protesting French President Emmanuel Macron’s plans to raise the country’s retirement age to 64, despite opposition from workers, the public and across the political spectrum.
