France Retirements Protests

Demonstrators have blocked car traffic outside airports in Paris and several smaller French cities to protest France's decision to raise the retirement age.
About 100 protesting airport workers played music, chanted slogans and blocked cars from accessing one of the terminals at Paris' Charles de Gaulle airport on Thursday.
A similar demonstration took place in Toulouse, and another blockage was reported in Nantes.
France's unions are angry about the government's plans to raise the retirement age from 60 to 62. They have waged massive strikes this month that disrupted travel and caused gasoline shortages.
The protests have mostly died down by now. Parliament has already approved the bill, and President Nicolas Sarkozy is expected to sign it in mid-November.
