BBC News – France pension protests: Macron calls on strikers not to ruin Christmas
French President Emmanuel Macron has appealed to transport unions to suspend strikes that threaten travel chaos over the Christmas holidays.
On a trip to Ivory Coast, Mr Macron suggested the strikers should “observe a truce out of respect for families and family life”.
Two weeks of strikes over planned pension reforms have caused widespread disruption across France.
Train operator SNCF said services would be “severely disrupted” over Christmas.
Half the usual number of high-speed TGV trains operated on Saturday, the company said, and half the metro lines in Paris were closed.
Many French citizens heading off to spend the holidays with family and friends have found themselves stranded because of cancelled trains and gridlocked roads. Hundreds of flights have also been cancelled.
