The police began to disperse the demonstration in Paris at 20:00, using tear gas and water cannons.

About seven thousand demonstrators gathered in the Place de la Concorde, according to Reuters. A journalist at the news agency stated that the protesters threw stones at the police.

The city is marked by a garbage strike. 8,000 tons of garbage dumped in the streets. The reason is that the cleaners are on strike over the president’s pension reform.

A mountain of rubbish several meters high is located right next to Loris Uzan’s restaurant. It doesn’t fit well.

– The days are getting a little better. It’s getting warmer. As long as it was cold, we didn’t feel very well. In the outdoor dining area the smell is disgusting. He says it is not higher.

In addition, foreign tourists do not understand much of what is happening. One of them is Jacqueline Costa from Brazil. Together with her mother, she takes a picture in front of the mountain of garbage.

– It’s a little uncomfortable. I think for those who are here for the first time, it’s not very attractive. She says it will be the first impression.

Paris is the most visited tourist destination in the world and is now surrounded by a whiff of food scraps and other waste.

However, street artist Alice Catanzaro supports the fight against pension reform.

The people will continue to fight. We will not surrender. This will continue, and maybe even stronger, as you say for TV 2.

through force

Among other things, the reform meant that the French had to work until they were 64, and not until 62, as is the case now. Ahead of the vote in the National Assembly on Thursday, Prime Minister Elizabeth Borne announced that there would be no vote.

President Emmanuel Macron used a special clause in the French constitution, 49.3, which gives him the right to force the proposals.

He did not dare to vote for fear of losing.

Parisian Jacques Mathieu understands the need to raise the retirement age. With the wave of senior citizens, there will be fewer people who have to pay more retirees.

He really hates what happens to the city full of rubbish.

– I think it’s a pity. It gives a bad impression of Paris, which is a very beautiful city. It gives the impression that you just let it rub and go. I do not support him.
