France: Protesters Storm BlackRock Office as Anger Mounts Against Macron's Proposed Pension Reforms (Video)

The ongoing protests in France have been fueled by a range of factors, including the government’s management of the Covid pandemic as well as their policies on open borders and migration.

Protests have erupted across France as people take to the streets to voice their opposition to President Emmanuel Macron’s proposed pension reforms. The protests have been ongoing since January, and tensions are rising as the government seeks to push changes to the country’s pension system.

The government implemented these reforms using a loophole in the French constitution, allowing them to raise the pension age without obtaining parliamentary approval.

On Thursday, demonstrators stormed BlackRock’s Paris office, chanting Antifa slogans and setting off fireworks. The investment giant deals with private pension funds, which the protesters argue only benefit the rich. The protesters are upset that the government’s proposed pension reforms will force people to finance their own pensions through private funds, making it impossible for ordinary people to retire comfortably.

The proposed reforms would streamline the country’s 42 separate pension schemes into a single points-based system. President Macron argues that this would make the system fairer, more transparent, and easier to administer. However, critics argue that the reforms would result in people working longer, paying more into the system, and receiving less in retirement.

The protests have been marked by clashes between the police and demonstrators, with tear gas and water cannons used to disperse the crowds. The demonstrations have also disrupted transportation, with trains and flights being canceled or delayed and schools and public services being closed.

Unions have called for 11 nationwide strike days since January, demanding that the government suspend or withdraw the proposed reforms. President Macron, however, remains firm in his stance that the reforms are necessary to make the pension system affordable in the long term. He wants the new pension law to take effect this year.

Françoise Onic, a 51-year-old teacher and protester, expressed her anger at the proposed reforms: “The government wants to throw away pensions, to force people to finance their own pensions through private pension funds, but we know that only the rich can benefit from that.”

The protesters have been chanting “On est la” (We are here) to express their determination to continue the protests until the government agrees to withdraw the proposed reforms.

The protests in France against President Macron’s proposed pension reforms show no signs of abating. The government and protesters are locked in a stand-off, with both sides refusing to back down. It remains to be seen how the situation will be resolved, but it is clear that many people in France are deeply unhappy with the proposed changes to the pension system.

The ongoing protests in France have been fueled by other various factors, including the government’s handling of the Covid pandemic and the enforced lockdown measures that have led to significant social and economic disruption. This has contributed to growing frustration and political tensions among the citizens. Additionally, there is also resentment towards the government’s open border policies that have opened the doors to floods of economic and often dangerous migrants and refugees. The combination of these factors has led to widespread protests across France, with citizens demanding greater accountability and transparency from the government on these issues.

Recent data indicates that if a presidential election were held today in France, Le Pen would decisively defeat Macron in the race to the Élysée, despite having lost to him by 17 points in the previous election. One study even suggests that Marine Le Pen is currently leading by 10 points. The French establishment is facing additional challenges as Macron will be ineligible to run in the next election in 2027. There is presently no clear successor who could win against the conservative candidate in a one-on-one race.

  • Ooops, they’ve run out of other people’s money to spend. Screw over the people. Now, dead rats and manure will be thrown at the tyrants. Oedpius Macron fiddles as Paris burns. Misery is currency to WEF satanists. They love this anarchy.

  • Le Pen would be better. Can’t imagine they have free and fair elections anywhere now. Saw a report on old transvestite wifey of Macron. It was pretty funny stuff. Problem with perverts in high office is they are so easily compromised, leveraged, or blackmailed. Seems like we have an excessive amount of perverted puppets now.

  • You French are such pussies. Macron de la Macaroni did not listen to you citizens.
    Macron de la Macaroni must do as Schwab, Soros and all criminal EU leaders ( except Orban ) tell him to do!
    Then all the EU leaders ( except Orban ) will meet at Davos to lick each others asses! Even Biden, Gates, Soros and Zuckerberg will be there with their dirty asses for von der Leyen to lick!
