The General Confederation of Labor (CGT) union has called for nationwide demonstrations to take place on Friday, December 14, to protest falling purchasing power and perceived inadequate pensions and social protections. Associated traffic disruptions are possible in major urban areas, including Paris.
The CGT previously organized demonstrations in Paris to protest unemployment and falling purchasing power on December 1, with as many as 15,000 people participating.
Individuals in France are advised to allow for extra time to reach their destinations and avoid all protests as a precaution.
