    Street demonstrations and strikes in France

    The revolt in France is growing! Up to 500,000 people went on strike and took to the streets across the country to protest unpopular pro-business labor reforms that would leave many people unemployed and would be an attack on worker's rights.


    France’s largest cities saw a new wave of street demonstrations and strikes as student groups and unions tried to maintain pressure on the government just days before the bill is brought to Parliament. Violent clashes between police and mainly young protesters broke out in Paris, as well as the cities of Nantes, Rennes and Lyon.


    Tyres were burned as students tried to block the main commercial port serving the French capital and its surrounding region. In Lyon, France’s third largest city, hundreds of students clashed with police as they tried to march on the city centre. Some threw objects at police, who responded with tear gas. Similar incidents were also reported in Nantes and Rennes. Despite concessions, unions and student organisations plan further protests on May Day, as well as on May 3, when parliament begins debating the bill.


    Meanwhile, an air traffic controllers strike canceled 20 percent of all the flights at Paris' Orly Airport and also caused delays at Charles De Gaulle Airport, according the Paris airport authority. ‪
