Louvre museum CLOSED as French pension-reform protesters block entrances (VIDEOS)

Dozens of demonstrators were in high spirits as they gathered at the entrance to the famous museum, chanting slogans and singing songs on a grey day in the French capital.

The landmark was chosen as a demonstration site because it is where French President Emmanuel Macron celebrated his victory in the May 2017 presidential election.

The museum stamped its website with a notice alerting potential visitors that it couldn’t guarantee entrance and their trip might be in vain. “Due to public strikes, the museum may open later and some exhibition rooms may remain closed. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding,” it read.

Each day between 30,000 and 50,000 visitors traipse through the gilded halls of the extraordinary museum. Friday’s demonstration saw a very long queue form outside the famous pyramid entrance, with Le Parisien newspaper reporting that some of the frustrated visitors booed the strikers.

Friday marked the 44th consecutive day of protests over the hotly contested pension reforms, which have continued despite government concessions last week.
