French railway workers continue strikes against Macron’s pension reform

Dozens of French railway workers set a bonfire outside Paris’ Gare de Lyon train station this Thursday as they started another day of strikes over President Emmanuel Macron’s unpopular pension reform.

France has been embroiled in weeks of demonstrations over the plans, which include raising the retirement age from 62 to 64. Thursday’s industrial action at SNCF, which was called by several unions, impacted regional lines and Paris suburban services.

Meanwhile, a loud gathering of approximately 250 people demonstrated in the Ganges, southwestern France, two hours before President Macron’s visit devoted to education.
