Le Figaro: Police Detain 120 People In Paris During Protests Against Pension Reform
Le Figaro reported, citing a French law enforcement source, that police detained 120 people at a protest against the pension reform in Paris.
The newspaper claims that the protesters originally gathered in the French capital’s Place de la Concorde. The cops made an effort to break up the protest.
On March 16, France’s Prime Minister Élisabeth Borne made a formal announcement about the adoption of pension reform without consulting Parliament. By 2030, the reform seeks to raise the retirement age from 62 to 64.
The retirement age will be progressively raised beginning in September 2023. Sociologists estimate that 67% of French people are against the change.
