Protest in France 

After learning of French President Emmanuel Macron’s plans to pass a bill which would raise the retirement age to 64, trade unions have been protesting in hopes that the council will deny the bill.

If the bill is approved, the government would be entitled to promulgate the law and hopes this will cause the protest across the nation, which has become rather violent, to end.  

The protestors have gone as far as blocking roads to the council with trash cans and hanging banners across the street reading “constitutional Censorship.”

Protests have gone on for 12 weeks now and each week the number of protesters decreases. Despite the drop in attendance, unions continue to fight. 

Marcon has said he will meet with the union after the council chose to work on other proposals. 

“The country must continue to move forward, work and face the challenges that await us,” Macron said during a news conference.

Arrest made in connection with U.S document leak

On Thursday, the FBI arrested 21 year-old Jack Teixeira, a member of the United States Air Force, with charges of probable cause for the leaking of classified documents.

Attorney General Merrick Garland said Teixeira was taken into custody due to “alleged authorized removal, retention and transmission of classified national defense information.” 

The documents were said to have initially been shared amongst a small group of users on a Discord and later received attention from a wider audience. One individual who claimed to be a part of the Discord server to The Washington Post believes the leaker lives on a military base and goes by the moniker “OG.”
