Around 20,000 people wearing black lawyer robes, pilot uniforms, and hospital clothing took to the streets of Paris on Monday to oppose pension reforms.

Protesters, including lawyers, doctors, nurses, pilots and flight attendants marched with their unions from the Opera towards the Bastille, showing the sign 'No to the Pension Tax.'

They were protesting against a planned pension reform which would merge the current 42 different pension schemes into a single point system.

Both people working in the private sector and employees in jobs regulated by the state, who benefit from special pension schemes, believe they would lose from the change.
