[パリ 31日 ロイター] – Large-scale protests were held across France on the 31st against the government’s plan to reform the pension system. A total of 1,272,000 people took part in the protests across the country, according to the Ministry of the Interior. A total of 87,000 people marched in the capital Paris.

The plan to reform the pension system includes raising the pension age from 62 to 64. President Emmanuel Macron has said that raising the pension system is “essential” for the pension system to survive, but polls poll shows that the majority are opposed to raising the age at which pensions start, and the opposition is growing stronger.
