    If you're retired, why are you protesting? Especially when it's an alleged attempt to privatize.

    If privatized, those who retied may lose their pension. That's a fair reason to protest when you are old and vulnerable. If you lose pension, its not only the ,money you lose, you lose pretty much everything. Sometimes, even your children may leave you.
