Reforme des retraites

leave a comment »

“Pension reform,” is the cry in France. This cartoon in the Süddeutsche Zeitung (by Wolfgang Horsch) says it well. The excellent Presseurop summarises the coverage by the French press. Between 1.1 and 3.5 million French (according to the source) demonstrated on 19 October against the government’s retirement reform.  For Libération, “Sarkozy is caught in the trap of the street” with a new poll suggesting that 79% want the new law to be renegociated. For Le Figaro, on the other hand, “The unions are caught in a trap”. The conservative daily focuses heavily on acts of hooliganism that occurred during the marches and considers that the movement is running out of steam.
