Pension reform in France: many wild gatherings (photos)

V.SOn Monday evening, the National Assembly rejected by nine votes a cross-party censure resolution submitted by the independent Leod Group after Elizabeth Bourne secured 49.3 points to pass the pension reform. This first motion received 278 of the required 287 votes.

The National Assembly also rejected a second audit resolution tabled by RN representatives, which would have led to the final adoption by Parliament of the pension reform plan, which would postpone the legal age from 62 to 64 years.

The first tensions have already erupted at Place Vauban in Paris. Missiles were fired and defensive leaps were seen with tear gas and CRS, Le Figaro reported.

Le Figaro also noted that garbage cans were set on fire on rue de la Bo├ętie in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. Demonstrators also gathered in front of Saint-Lazare station.
