returned Paris From the City of Light to the City of Garbage is expected to continue until the end of this week, Spanish newspaper “La Bangordia” reported, after piles of garbage appeared on its streets after a strike by sanitation workers.

The newspaper indicated that the cleaners had called the strike to oppose a controversial pension reform bill that would have raised the retirement age in France from 62 to 64.

He explained that, according to local media, a total of at least 5,400 tons of waste is currently piling up in several neighborhoods in the French capital where private service providers do not dispose of it.

In addition to this visible pile of garbage, three garbage incinerators in the Paris metropolitan area have also been shut down.

Neighbors began to complain about the smell, saying it was affecting tourism.Like Paris, other French cities were hit by strikes on garbage collection, but the mobilization since last Wednesday has also included other sectors.

In the transport sector, strikes this weekend affected both aviation and railways, whose services will continue to be disrupted over the next few days.

In the energy sector, blockades at many refineries in the country will continue, although they have not yet caused a fuel supply crisis similar to the one seen at the end of 2022 due to labor economic demands.
