French left in last-ditch bid to derail pensions overhaul

FRANCE’S left-wing forces and labour unions will stage another day of strikes today to try to derail President Emmanuel Macron’s pensions overhaul, insisting that the fight to thwart the changes is not over even after it became law.

Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to take to the streets across France for what will be the fourteenth day of demonstrations since January to oppose the reform.
