It is held today throughout the France the third day of protests against the pension reform project, which provides for the raising of the retirement age from 62 to 64 years. Several sectors have been affected by the strikes called by the trade unions.

Among these is the energy one, with the union of the General Confederation of Labor (CGT) announcing a drop in production in nuclear power plants of 4.500 megawatt hours. TotalEnergies has announced that its refineries have an adhesion rate of 7 percent. The television station "BfmTv" reports that several high schools in the capital are blocked or partially blocked.

"We have entered a moment of great tensions," said the leader of France Insoumise, Jean-Luc Mélenchon from the Gare de Lyon train station in Paris, where he went to support the striking workers. The trade unions of the SNCF, a public railway operator, have announced a 35 per cent membership, against 36 per cent in the last mobilization. Demonstrations have already begun in several French cities such as Nantes, Toulouse or Nice. The main one, scheduled for Paris, will leave at 14pm from the Place de l'Opera.
