France : Pension Protests enter Day 6 as capital shuts down

France : Pension Protests enter Day 6 as capital shuts down
Massive Protests in France against Pension Reform are entering their sixth day . The indefinite strike action has seen more than 1.5 million workers take part in a hundred rallies accross france ,  a shut down of public transport , railways , schools and tourist attractions including the Eiffel Tower .

Workers Unions say the proposals put forward by Prime Minister Édouard Philippe and President Emmanuel Macron to introduce a universal pension system will result in millions of private sector workers having to work beyond the legal retirement age in order to receive a full pension and many workers losing a significant amount of their pension . 

A Similar proposal in 1995 by french prime minister Alain Juppé and president Jacques Chirac, resulted in mass strike action with more than 2 million workers taking to the streets for 3 successive weeks during which time all of France's metro lines were shut down, the action plunged the government into crisis , resulting in the prime minister being removed from office and a victory for workers unions against the reform .

The retirement age now in Australia is 70. When these G20, G8, GG's whatever,are held,it is only for the ELITE to maintain the power base.The diversity in income and wealth has never been grater,it outstrips the Victorian age of greedy parasitic behavior, and the working class will pay more tax and retire later,to which the Rich Elite refuse.The trickle down effect does not work,the rich get richer,the poor get poorer. But,the rich use infrastructure that taxpayers pay for,the parasitic left bludger gives his vote to the elite for an easy ride.Thus, tax paying workers are too busy heads down trying to survive. Most workers in Aus. have not had a pay increase in 10yrs. despite the yearly rise to the cost of living. I admire any society that gets up for themselves and protests to this ridiculous Globalist Communist Capalist stupidity.A protest might last a week but what would happen when they break the working class, GOD FORBID they've already crippled the middle class. I suggest Ireland pick a date,early 2020 and  STRIKE BOYCOTT MARCH to let the Lecherous Elite Traitors know their folly. Ireland was one of the first small countries to gain INDEPENDENCE,IN 20th Century.In history we also saved Europe,despite what the Irish People endured over 800yrs.  A SURE, ITS GRAND...TO BE A PATRIOT........TRAITORS OUT 2020 PLAN
