French Court Approves Macron’s Unpopular Pension Reform As Fresh Protests Expected

ER Editor: That the French Constitutional Council, France’s equivalent of the US Supreme Court, should go along with Macron’s pension reform hardly comes as a surprise. It’s clear there is ZERO democracy, ZERO room for We The People’s will in France, like everywhere in the West. It was pretty much expected. But at least the French get to wake up even more. They were a sleepy lot over ‘Covid’ and the genetic injections. Here are some tweets published overnight:

Translation: Scenes of revolt in the streets of #Rennes. A police station is burned

Translation: Thousands of demonstrators gather in front of the Paris City Hall following the decision of the Constitutional Council

Translation: It is almost two o’clock in the morning and small groups of demonstrators leave in spontaneous demonstration in the streets of Paris

Translation: Barricades continue to be erected in the streets of Paris where the demonstrations continue


French Court Approves Macron’s Unpopular Pension Reform As Fresh Protests Expected

France’s top constitutional body ruled in favor of President Emmanuel Macron’s unpopular plan to raise the retirement age is in line with the French Constitution, a decision that will only spark further social unrest.

Bloomberg  reported the Constitutional Council in Paris, France’s equivalent of the US Supreme Court, “approved the core elements of the law, including the key contested provision to raise the minimum retirement age by two years to 64.”

The nine-member body rejected one of two opposition-backed demands for a process that would have allowed for a referendum on keeping the pension age cutoff at 62. (ER: Of course they did.)

We suspect hardline unions and the opposition won’t back down this weekend and will continue protests. (ER: A reminder that the French unions are strongly suspected of being a sell-out to the government, and Jean-Luc Melenchon, quoted below, is one of the biggest shill-globalists to be found anywhere. This pension problem has given such people a reason to get up in the morning.)

On Thursday, pension  demonstrators stormed  the LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton, the world’s largest maker of luxury goods, headquarters in Paris. One union leader said:

“Apparently our government is struggling to finance our social security and pension system, so money needs to be found where it is, which is in billions in companies like LVMH,” Fabien Villedieu from the Sud-Rail unions said on local television. 

Just last week, pension protesters stormed the offices of  BlackRock’s Paris headquarters.

More demonstrations are imminent after today’s ruling that solidified pension reform.
