França se prepara para greve em massa

A França deve amanhecer na quinta-feira paralisada por uma greve em massa em protesto contra a reforma do sistema previdenciário. A manifestação ameaça bloquear o país por tempo indefinido.

Some 90 percent of high-speed trains have been axed, most of the Paris metro will be shut, hundreds of flights cancelled and the majority of schools closed in Thursday's strike over Macron's planned pension reforms.

The strike -- which is open-ended and could last several days -- has drawn comparisons between the struggle between government and unions in November-December 1995 when the country was paralysed for some three weeks.
