Riots broke out and public transport came to a halt in much of France over the weekend in a strike that looks set to continue as protesters prepare for another major demonstration tomorrow in Paris.

The demonstrations against pension reforms by Emmanuel Macron saw at least 800,000 demonstrators take to the streets of France last Thursday as the government prepares to publish its pension plan this Wednesday.

The retirement age of workers is expected to increase in various sectors, including rail and energy industry employees, with news of the reforms drawing nationwide protests. Government officials have said that the current pension arrangements are unsustainable due to France’s aging workforce.
