France : Pension Protests enter Day 6 as capital shuts down

politics
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 . protester holds placard "Here are the thugs"
