France: Parisians Denounce Govt. Decision to Push Through Pension Reform Without Vote

Protesters gathered in front of the French National Assembly in Paris on Saturday to denounce the French government’s decision to push through its pension reform bill by decree without a parliamentary vote.

Footage shows protesters chanting “Even though Macron doesn’t like it but we are still here” and facing off with police in front of the National Assembly.

French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe employed Article 49-3 of the French constitution to “end the non-debate” over pension reform, according to reports.

The government’s pension reform bill, which ignited one of the largest waves of protests in French history, began being debated in the National Assembly on the 17th of February. The reform aims to unite 42 specific pension regimes into a single points-based system.
