Protests Erupt in France after Macron Bypasses Parliament to Pass Pension Reform

Protests erupted across France after French President Emmanuel Macron enacted special constitutional powers to pass a fiercely opposed pension bill without the people being able to a vote.

The french president used Article 49.3 of the Constitution to force he pension reform bill without a parliamentary vote.

The enactment of article 49.3 highlights the pension bill’s unpopularity as many protests explode across France against Macron for ignoring the will of the people.

Marine Le Pen, leader of the National Rally party, called for Macron to step down.

“After the slap that the Prime Minister just gave the French people, by imposing a reform which they do not want, I think that Elisabeth Borne should go,” tweeted Le Pen on Thursday.

The French deeply cherish the right to retire on a full pension at 62. Still, with surging costs of living and energy woes, the issue has become a rallying cry for those protesting what appears to be an EU-centralized dictatorship.

As France 24 reported: French opposition lawmakers jeered as Borne announced the decision, and many MPs began singing the national anthem in the lower house.

The session was suspended for two minutes as the reaction from left-wing lawmakers prevented Borne from speaking.

Some brandished placards read “No to 64 years”.

When the session resumed, Borne took the floor but her speech was largely drowned out by boos and chants from opposition MPs and shouts of “resignation”, in a rare chaotic scene in the French parliament.
