France takes to the streets

Around 3.5 million people took part in massive strikes to protest the French government’s plan to increase the age of full retirement from 65 to 67 and early retirement from age 60 to 62. Retirement is when a person stops working for the rest of his or her life. Protesters closed down schools, ports, airports and railways.
