For Marine Le Pen, the French are "cheated" by the pension reform


Marine Le Pen said this Saturday on BFMTV that she understood the French who will demonstrate against the pension reform, without explicitly calling to join the planned union and political mobilizations.

That there are people who are mobilizing, who are taking to the streets, I can understand that, to defend their rights of course.

Because, once again, they will be hit hard

"by the decline in the starting age to 64 years planned by the government, said this Saturday on BFMTV Marine Le Pen on the sidelines of a trip to Fismes, in the Marne.

I don't believe at all that (Elisabeth Borne) will be able to convince.

The more the debate will focus on pensions, and we will be the first actors in this debate, the more the French will understand that they are truly cheated with this reform

, ”added the RN deputy, the first party among the workers.

I don't know if there will be a major mobilization, but what is certain is that a large majority of French people are totally opposed

to it," said the MP for Pas-de-Calais, who wants the repeal of the reform but does not intend to obstruct the Assembly during the examination of the text.

Partial legislative election

Marine Le Pen went to Marne to support RN deputy Anne-Sophie Frigout, who won the legislative elections in June, before her election was canceled.

The head of the RN intends to make this by-election of January 22 and 29 a referendum for or against the pension reform.

The government plans in its plan to gradually postpone the retirement age to 64, instead of the current 62, while accelerating the extension of the contribution period.

The main unions, unanimously opposed to this reform, announced a first day of strikes and demonstrations on January 19, to which the whole of the left called to join.

Polls also show that the French are mostly hostile to the reform.
