    Paris, October 19th 2010 - Demonstrations for the protection of the pensions.


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     parallaxes shared this video and these images on the recent strikes in Paris. When asked if the protests are helping anything he said he didn't believe so and he added, 'Demonstrations and strikes are something like a tradition in France. But the situation can get worse if the lack of gas and the urban violence go on.'
    - sjunca, CNN iReport producer

    Paris,9th: demonstrators are walking to the point of departure of the sixth demonstration against the reform of the pensions.

    This cool atmosphere contrasts with the violence and the lootings which took place in Lyon, committed by vandals.

    Labor unions estimate at 3 500 000 the number of participants in all France, with a very considerable mobilization of the high school students.
