Feature - National Strike in France
Mass strikes across France, particularly affecting transport and paralysing much of Paris, move into their second week. The strikes are over proposals by the French government to reform the country's pension system. The government says the current system - with 42 different regimes - is confusing, opaque and unfair and wants to introduce a universal system where everybody's pension is calculated in the same way. As at least 800,000 people protested on Dec 5th, with clashes reported in several cities, Unions have called for more mass demonstrations.
