Among the main demands of the French is the revision of the pension reform proposed by Macron, before it is approved by the Council of Ministers.

Representatives of the unions of teachers, doctors, lawyers and railway workers marched again Thursday in the streets of Paris, capital of  France, against the social policies and economic President Emmanuel Macron,  particularly its reform of pensions .

Among the main demands of the French is the revision of the pension reform proposed by Macron, before it is approved by the Council of Ministers, reiterating that it violates their fundamental rights.

After 43 days of general strike, the Executive has yielded in provisionally withdrawing the retirement age, however, asks for an agreement with social organizations, while the Secretary General of the General Confederation of Labor (CGT), Philippe Martínez, said that the government did not convince them with the recent announcement.

The CGT has reported that some 250,000 people participated in the mobilization day, more than 82,000 in 50 cities outside Paris, where at least 11 protesters were arrested.

The participation of the education sector, mainly teachers, was significant because they are the most affected by Macron’s proposal to put an end to the 42 different existing retirement schemes.

Martínez also said that the determination is still great, since “it is never too late to make a government yield.”
