Live from Paris as French workers and citizens take to the streets after President Emmanuel Macron decided to use executive privilege to force through his pension reforms without a vote in the National Assembly.

The Senate passed the proposals by 193-144, which increase the retirement age from 62 to 64. However, the vote in the lower house was withdrawn at the last minute, with the result believed to be too close to call.

Regular demonstrations and strikes against the bill have taken place in recent months, with rallies expected to intensify following the use of the executive power.
