Protesters in Paris Take Fight Against Pension Reforms to BlackRock Headquarters

On Thursday, protesters in Paris took their fight against France's plan to raise the retirement age to BlackRock, the world's largest money manager. Approximately 100 people, including representatives of several labor unions, stormed the Centorial office block near the Opéra Garnier opera house, chanting anti-reform slogans and holding red flares and smoke bombs. The protesters were voicing their opposition to the government's pension reforms, which would raise the retirement age and delay pension payments. The protests against the reforms have been ongoing for weeks, and it appears the protesters are determined to make their voices heard.
