The clash between Paris police and protesters over Emmanuel Macron’s pension reform continues


Paris police and protesters have clashed for a second night in a row over President Emmanuel Macron’s pension reform plans. Thousands of protesters took to the streets of the French capital on Tuesday night, blocking roads and clashing with police as they demonstrated against the proposed changes.

Police used tear gas and stun grenades to disperse the crowd, while protesters responded by throwing rocks and bottles. Fourteen people were arrested and at least 40 injured in the clashes.

The protests come after Macron announced his plans for pension reform, which would see the current system replaced with a single, points-based system. The changes have been met with widespread criticism from labor unions and citizens alike, who argue that the changes will only benefit the wealthy and harm those on lower incomes.
