Mass protests led to the closure of eight metro lines, with the remaining functioning intermittently. Railway company SNCF announced a strong reduction in domestic train traffic, while international Eurostar was forced to completely suspend train movements. Travelers are asked to refuse trips or use another mode of transport.
Protests take place throughout France. They are caused by an increase in the retirement age from 62 to 64 years. Despite concessions from the government, which was forced to revise the reform, the strikes resumed with renewed vigor. Now the reason was the decrease in the amount of payments after reaching retirement age.
