Poland -Pension reform leads to firm protest -May 11, 2012

Plans to lift the retirement age have led to some of the biggest protest in recent years. Under the reform, men and women will eventually retire at 67. Union activists of Solidarność blocked the parliament building after the bill passed. The government says that the reform prepares the country for a demographic shift. Solidarność considers renewing the protest during the Euro 2012 tournament.
