The reform raised the minimum retirement age to 62 from 60.

And they RIOT over that. All across Europe, the US-based  (IMF) “austerity” demands, attempting to turn Europe into the US, are sparking RIOTS.

I frown upon the riots, and think they should just use democracy to achieve their ends, but I do admire their aware and awake public.
