Scuffles erupt as Paris protesters rally against pension reforms

Protesters marching against the French government’s planned pension reform have clashed with police in the capital, Paris, as police fired tear gas to disperse some the groups.

France’s trade unions have spearheaded nationwide strikes since early December in an outcry over President Emmanuel Macron’s pensions overhaul, disrupting schools, railways and roads, while lending support to regular protests.

On Saturday, anti-government movement “yellow vest” protesters joined a rally of several thousand people against the pensions shake-up.
