Paris In Paris, many people took to the streets again on Saturday against the planned pension reform. A dozen youth organizations and France’s left-wing LFI had called protests against raising the retirement age.

Because the pension system will not be financed in the long term due to the aging of the population, the French government wants to gradually increase the retirement age from 62 to 64 years. In addition, the number of years of payment required for a full pension should increase more rapidly. A series of individual systems with privileges for certain professional groups will be suppressed. The minimum monthly pension amounts to about 1200 euros.

Currently, the retirement age is 62 years. In fact, however, retirement starts later on average: those who have not contributed long enough to qualify for a full pension also work longer.

Jean-Luc Mélenchon of the LFI Left Party accused the French president Emmanuel Macron at the rally on Saturday, with his “dirty everything, reduce everything, quantify everything” policy. “Damn you for wanting to commodify everything,” he told the president. The government received support for its reform plans from tech billionaire Elon Musk. He tweeted on Friday that Macron’s plans are difficult but correct.
