Bonfires in the streets of French cities, broken windows and mass protests: the French citizens are against an increase in the retirement age, which the cabinet approved despite public resistance.

Protesters marched through the streets of Paris, Marseille, Lyon and other major French cities after the government survived two votes of no-confidence after the government implemented a constitutional right to bypass the parliament on the decision to raise the retirement age. 

It now has adopted the controversial law to raise the pension age to 64 from 62. However, opposition MPs pledge to continue to fight against it.

The protests began again after the votes on Monday evening.

Check out the photos of protests held immediately after the two no-confidence votes.
