Thousands protest in Paris against pension reform, amid clashes with police

Paris, France (CNN) — Thousands took to the streets of Paris on Saturday afternoon to protest pension reform, amid clashes with police.

People gathered spontaneously in Piazza Italia, in the south of the capital, after unions called for a last-minute gathering in the square.

The protest came after police announced a ban on gatherings in the city center’s Place de la Concorde where protesters had been gathering on Thursday and Friday evenings.

Demonstrators burned rubbish and clashed with police, who threw tear gas.
