Women protest French pension reform plan to mark International Women’s Day as workers extend walkouts

Women mobilized Wednesday across France in protest against the government’s pension reform plan to mark International Women's Day after thousands of workers objected to the proposal the previous day.

As workers decided to remain on strike in some sectors -- public transportation, in particular -- Transport Minister Clement Beaune told the LCI broadcaster that traffic disruptions will continue until Friday.

Some electricity workers deliberately cut power Tuesday and Wednesday, which triggered an angry response from the government.

Government spokesperson Olivier Veran said that the action is illegal and it is not the same as a walkout or a demonstration. He also condemned the vandalism which occurred during the protests Tuesday.

The French Directorate General for Civil Aviation (DGAC) urged companies to cancel up to 30% of flights planned for March 9 and 10 because much of the airport staff will be attending the strike action, seriously disrupting air traffic, according to the Le Figaro newspaper.

Senator of The Republicans party (Les Republicains), Stephane Le Rudulier, voiced criticism for the strike culture in France, expressing concern about the possible risks in the energy sector and said he proposed a draft bill to limit the right to strike at oil refineries, added Le Figaro.

Nationwide demonstrations were held in Paris and other cities for a sixth time Tuesday since January after the plan triggered public outrage when it was announced last year.

Trade unions have set new mobilization days for March 11 and 15, in a statement released on Twitter.

The national railway company SNCF's workers, as well as their peers at the Parisian regional transport operator, RATP, decided to extend walkouts to Wednesday.

Oil refinery workers also extended the strike, blocking the fuel transfer to stations.

Young groups will gather Thursday while trade unions asked to be "received urgently" by President Emmanuel Macron, according to media reports.

The reform plans, which have triggered public outrage, include raising the retirement age from 62 to 64 in 2030 and requires at least 43 years of work to be eligible for full pensions.

European committee slams Greece for state of rights in country

A European Parliament (EP) committee slammed Greece on Wednesday for the state of human rights in the country, which it said is worsening.

“We came to Athens continuing as part of its mission to protect the freedom of the press and the media, to examine immigration policies, human rights, and equal treatment issues,” said Sophie In't Feld, a member of the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE), during a news conference after a three-day visit to Greece.

“We were also here to review the matters related to the use of spyware, the state of rule of law, and the fight against corruption,” she said.

After thanking everyone who cooperated with the committee during the visit, Feld said: “We regret that Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, ministers, representatives of the police, Supreme Court Prosecutor Isidoros Dogiakos and other officials were not available.”

Arguing that the accountability process is under strain and freedom of independent authorities and media is limited, the judiciary is slow and ineffective, she said there are very serious risks posing a threat to the rule of law and fundamental rights in the country.

“The treatment of refugees both at the external borders and inside Greece, including pushbacks, violence, illegal detention and theft of assets as has been reported, causes great concern,” Feld added.

Turkic countries standing alongside Türkiye since powerful quakes

Turkic countries have stood alongside Türkiye through various forms of aid since the country’s southern regions were jolted by powerful Kahramanmaras-centered quakes on Feb. 6.

Azerbaijan was the first country that took part in search and rescue efforts in Türkiye’s southern regions, mobilizing an 867-person rescue and medical team that assisted in the rescue of 53 people from the rubble.

Baku also provided more than 10,000 tents, approximately 2,400 generators, over 20,000 heaters, 32,000 blankets, and around 3,000 tons of food aid to Türkiye, in addition to about $15 million in cash aid.

Separately, Azerbaijan’s State Oil Company SOCAR provided ambulances, fire brigades, Türkiye's disaster management agency AFAD, and official search and rescue vehicles with free fuel.

The aid was delivered to Türkiye by train, as well as 15 planes, 395 trucks, and 25 containers.

Kazakhstan was one of the first countries to provide aid to Türkiye following the quakes, with the Kazakh government, on the orders of President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, having provided $1 million to the country in urgent cash support.

Kazakhstan also sent 55 tons of in-kind aid consisting of basic needs to Türkiye, while the Turkish Embassy in Astana collected donations of nearly $15 million and a group of Kazakh citizens sent more than 100 traditional Kazakh yurts.

Meanwhile, a search and rescue team of about 100 people were involved in operations in southern Türkiye, specifically in the Gaziantep and Hatay provinces, and contributed to the rescue of seven people while recovering the bodies of 88.

Türkiye’s embassy in Uzbekistan, with the coordination of various local non-governmental and Turkish organizations, launched a nationwide aid campaign following the earthquakes, which collected more than $600,000 worth of aid.

Under the aid campaign, an additional 600 tons of humanitarian aid, including medicines and medical supplies, food, clothing, shoes, blankets, sleeping bags, diapers, cleaning and hygiene materials, generators, electric stoves, and other materials were collected and sent to different regions of Türkiye.

At the same time, a 100-person Uzbek search and rescue and medical team went to Türkiye to assist operations in the quake-hit area, during which they rescued 18 people from under the rubble.

The Uzbek military medical team also established a field hospital in Ovakent, in the Hatay region, while Uzbek cooks went to the region and distributed two meals a day to a total of 10,000 people.

The Turkish Embassy in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan’s capital, collected 55 tons of aid and $994,364 in the deposit account it opened for donations.

As of March 6, approximately $1.1 million was deposited into a bank account opened by the Kyrgyz Finance Ministry, while the Kyrgyz Emergency Situations Ministry’s team in southern Türkiye set up 124 tents in the quake zone.

As a result of the aid campaigns organized by non-governmental organizations in Turkmenistan and the Turkish Embassy in Ashgabat, 8,071 blankets, 390 beds, 20 generators, 60 heaters, six mobile toilets, 11.2 tons of clothing, and 44.4 tons of medical supplies have been delivered to the earthquake victims so far, along with 67 tons of food aid.

More than 46,100 people were killed in Türkiye by earthquakes that struck on Feb. 6, according to officials.

The magnitude 7.7 and 7.6 quakes, centered in Kahramanmaras, rocked 11 provinces, including Adana, Adiyaman, Diyarbakir, Gaziantep, Hatay, Kilis, Malatya, Osmaniye, Elazig, and Sanliurfa.
