An intense week is being prepared regarding the government’s plan to raise the legal retirement age from 62 to 64. Indeed, this Monday, January 30, 2023, the deputies kick off the debates in committee.

From Tuesday, January 31, a new day of mobilization is being prepared. Just like on January 19, when 130 demonstrations were organized, opponents of the pension reform met throughout France and major disruptions are to be expected in transport and strike notices have been announced in the energy sector and in some schools.

Recall that during the last mobilization, the various processions had gathered 2 million people according to the secretary general of the CGT Philippe Martinez, and 1.12 million people according to the count of the Ministry of the Interior.

To date, there are 225 gatherings scheduled for tomorrow with disparities in some regions. The west of France seems particularly mobilized. In Brittany, according to a map posted online by the newspaper Ouest-France, there are 20 gatherings throughout the region. The Normandy region is strongly mobilized especially in the departments of Manche and Orne as well as the north of France in the departments of Somme and Aisne.

With a single gathering, the departments of Gironde, Pyrénées-Orientales, Alpes-Maritimes and even Bas-Rhin appear less mobilized for this day of national strike. Discover in detail in our slideshow, the 11 departments where mobilization will be strong on Tuesday, January 31.
