France: Striking rail workers rally in Paris as Macron's reform goes under review

French railway workers demonstrated in central Paris on Monday, as the review of French President Emmanuel Macron's proposed labour began to be discussed in the National Assembly. While the rally was scheduled for Les Invalides, protesters tried to enter the National Assembly, but were stopped by the police. Clashes erupted at their last destination, Trocadero, where the protesters were... Еще finally forced to leave by metro. The demonstration is part of the three-month walkout led by staff at the French publicly-owned railway operator SNCF. The strike costs the company €20 million ($24.7 million; £17.4 million) per day, according to President of the SNCF Guillaume Pepy.
