Looking for local information regarding the Paris riots


Full Registered User
Sanitation workers in Paris are continuing their strike against a pension reform bill, resulting in garbage filling the streets. Workers are protesting the pension bill, which would raise retirement ages and could reduce their pensions. The strike has caused disruptions to public transportation, schools, and garbage collection, resulting in a buildup of trash on the streets of Paris. The strike has been ongoing for over two weeks, and the French government has so far been unable to resolve the dispute.

Any agents based in Paris with up to date information regarding the status of the riots?

A client will be in the country on a trip and has safety concerns. Of course I will try to persuade them to use a professional service, but its doubtful.

Is it widespread, localized? Hows it affecting traffic and public transportation? Any information will be appreciated.
