Millions strike in France

Last Thursday's strike in France against pension 'reform' was massive.

More than 200,000 people took part in the demonstration in Paris. Strikes by transport workers, teachers, nurses and many others took place.

Strikes continued on Friday 6 December.

A new strike date, Tuesday 10 December, has been set.
