Protests Down in France; Transportation Up

October 28, 2010 By: Jena Tesse Fox

The New York Times is reporting that several hundred thousand people demonstrated again on Thursday to protest changes in France’s retirement age, but, the article noted, the numbers were down significantly from previous protests.

Job actions disrupted air and rail traffic on Thursday, with news reports saying half of the flights at Orly Airport near Paris would be grounded and a third of flights at Roissy-Charles de Gaulle and other airports canceled.

The national railroad system said on its website that up to 80 percent of high-speed intercity trains would run despite the strikes, but the proportion for slower and local trains would be lower. Eurostar service to London was expected to operate normally, and services on the Paris subway and bus system were near normal.
