The French Minister expressed his solidarity with the 175 security forces injured in the protests.
Darmanin stated that 201 people were detained during the demonstrations.
Pension reform crisis
The demonstrations in France, which started on March 16, continue after the government’s decision to pass the draft law, which includes raising the retirement age by 2 years from 62 to 64, without voting.
Violence is taking place in many parts of the country between the protesters and the police, who violently intervened in the demonstrations.
More than 1,000 people have been detained in protests across the country since March 16.
In the previous 9 mass demonstrations, millions of people took to the streets.
