French protesters stormed the offices of stockmarket operator Euronext in La Defense business district in Paris demanding big companies “pay up” to finance pensions, as citizens continue to rise against president Emmanuel Macron’s pension reform.
“We are told that there is no money to finance pensions,” said Sud-Rail unionist Fabien Villedieu.
But there is “no need to get the money from the pockets of workers, there is some in the pockets of billionaires.”
The French protesters occupied Euronext’s lobby in Paris, engulfing the building in red smoke from flares., Reuters reported.
“We are here, we are here, even if Macron does not want it, we are here,” the protesters chanted.
They also shouted: “Macron resign!”
Earlier this month, Protesters entered the Le Centorial block with smoke bombs and flares as fire alarms sounded off through the building’s plush surroundings.
The railway workers’ union members set off incendiary devices in the building, filling it with smoke.
Macron bypassed a parliamentary vote in March, forcing through his unpopular pension plan with constitutional power to impose the bill.
The Daily Fetched reported that the French National Assembly rejected a no-confidence vote against Macron and Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne, despite the massive uproar against the pension plans.
The motion’s defeat means the Prime Minister won’t have to resign, and Macron’s tyrannical pension overhaul will be signed into law.
