TOPSHOT - A protester wearing a hood stands next to a burning new kiosk beside the Place de l'Opera on the sidelines of a demonstration as part of a national day of strikes and protests, a week after the French government pushed a pensions reform through parliament without a vote, using the article 49.3 of the constitution, in Paris, on March 23, 2023. - French unions on March 23 staged a new day of disruption against the president's pension reform after he defiantly vowed to implement the change, which includes raising the age of retirement from 62 to 64, saying he was prepared to accept unpopularity in the face of sometimes violent protests.
