French Prime Minister Bourne called the violence accompanying anti-reform protests unacceptable

MOSCOW, March 24 – RIA Novosti. French Prime Minister Elisabeth Born said it was unacceptable for demonstrators to use violence against the government’s pension reform.

“It is a right to demonstrate and express your opposition. The violence and damage we see today is unacceptable. I am grateful to the mobilized police and emergency services,” the Prime Minister wrote on Twitter.

Last week, Bourne voted to pass a bill that raises the retirement age from 62 to 64 without a vote in parliament, under Section 49.3 of the constitution. He used his item. Previously, this law had caused a strong wave of protests in France, many of which brought together more than a million participants across the country. The demonstrations were accompanied by clashes between demonstrators and police, pogroms and riots.

Public discontent also deepened after an interview with French President Emmanuel Macron on Wednesday, in which he defended the new law and expressed regret that authorities had failed to better explain the need for the French to the French. Previously, Macron was required to pass the bill to raise the retirement age 49.3. He supported the use of the substance and said the “crowd” had no legitimacy as opposed to citizens expressing their position through their elected MPs.
