Thousands of demonstrators returned to the streets of Paris on Thursday (16/3) to protest the pension reform that Emmanuel Macron’s government wants to implement without passing the vote of the French National Assembly deputies.

Macron’s government, through Prime Minister Elizabeth Born, has activated a special device to raise the minimum retirement age from 62 to 64.

Section 49.3 allows the government to force the bill without going through the National Assembly.

The only way to stop this is to pass a motion of no confidence in the government within 24 hours, rejecting the law, forcing the dissolution of Congress and calling early elections.
