France: Students block off Paris schools as back anti-labour reform protest

Students blocked the entrance to secondary schools such as the Fenelon Lyceum in Paris on Tuesday morning, as part of a protest against French President Emmanuel Macron’s newly introduced labour law reforms. Barricades of rubbish bins and safety barriers were constructed to prevent students and teachers from entering the site and attending the nationwide protest against changes to the Labour... Еще Code. Students placed a photograph that depicted Macron in a scene of hellish flames, with the slogan «Our rights to fire and blood.» The changes to the Labour Code announced in August, have been met with disapproval of French labour unions who subsequently called for mass demonstrations and strikes to prevent further measures. The government’s new measures are set to make it easier for small and medium sized companies to hire and fire workers, and will hand them further power for setting pay and working conditions. France has historically been proud of its strict labour code, which has protected employees’ rights. Companies argue that the code has impeded economic growth and affected investment and job creation.
