Thousands of protesters flocked to the streets of Toulouse on Tuesday, to continue rallying against pension reforms pushed through by President Emmanuel Macron.

Footage shows aerial views of the crowds marching, with smoke rising from burning debris. Police officers could also be seen on the streets during the protest.

The French Interior Ministry reported that around 740,000 people participated in 240 protests across France.

The demonstrations have intensified since the Macron government’s decision to bypass a vote in the National Assembly and force through the plan to raise the retirement age from 62 to 64 by 2030, as well as extend the required employment period for a worker to receive a full pension to 43 years.

Violent demonstrations took place in cities all across the country to oppose the package and the use of the executive powers, with heavy clashes between protesters and police, drawing concerns from the Council of Europe’s human rights commissioner.
