Thousands of people protested in Nouméa on Friday, March 22, to denounce plans to raise the retirement age from 60 to 62. The march comes amid an ongoing strike by public sector workers, which began on March 18, to demand better salaries. Further protests are possible in the coming days and weeks, and disruptions related to the strike are to be anticipated.
Individuals in Nouméa are advised to monitor developments to the situation and avoid all gatherings.
