Protests against pensions in France: mounds of rubbish and torched electric scooters

Massive crowds demonstrated throughout France, in a ninth day of nationwide protests and strikes towards laws to lift the retirement age from 62 to 64.

Demonstrators set fireplace to bins and piles of uncollected garbage, prompting the intervention of firefighters.

Rubbish collectors have been on strike for greater than two weeks in a number of cities, with Paris seeing 1000’s of tonnes of uncollected waste on the streets.
