120 people detained at anti-pension reform protests in Paris
Law enforcement officers detained at least 120 participants in a rally against pension reform in Paris. About it informs Le Figaro, citing a source in the French police.
The demonstrators went to the center of Paris to the Place de la Concorde. Here the police made an attempt to disperse the demonstration. Law enforcement officers used water cannons and tear gas.
In addition, large-scale protests are taking place in Lyon, Nantes, Marseille and Rennes – the municipality of this city announced at least 700 football fans who are actively involved in clashes with the police.
On March 16, the French Prime Minister announced the adoption of pension reform, bypassing a vote in Parliament. At the same time, the day before, local media claimed that the French leader threatened to dissolve the lower house of parliament if the reform vote fails.
