Chaos erupted on the streets of France for the third consecutive night as protesters clashed with police over President Emmanuel Macron’s pension reform bill.
The legislation raises the country’s retirement age from 62 to 64, prompting frustration and strikes among citizens who value work-life balance.
Activists shared videos of protesters storming through a major shopping center and ransacking a town hall in Leon.
Police made dozens of arrests and attempted to block off streets to contain the crowd, but dumpster fires and tear gas filled the air.
The bill’s opponents plan to hold a vote of no confidence in the coming days, which could collapse Macron’s government and overturn the controversial legislation.
