President Macron in 'tricky' situation after pension reforms spark violent protests

Sky, 17 Mar 2023

The move has been met with angry scenes in parliament and violence on the streets where hundreds of protesters have been arrested.

Political commentator Agnes Poirier told Sky News members of the French parliament feel "cheated" and there had been a "clear communication failure" to the public with the government now facing a no-confidence vote.
