French Farmers Stage Protest

(Paris, France)
Vast convoys made up of more than 1,000 tractors brought chaos to Paris today as French farmers protested against plummeting food prices.

The mass demonstration led to traffic jams stretching for up to 10 mile, with some roads completely blocked by the slow-moving vehicles.

Buses transporting some 5,000 farmers into the capital were also taking part.

Protesters blamed the Socialist government for their economic woes. “They’re not doing enough to protect us from the big supermarket chains and from foreign competition,” said Pierre Durand, a Brittany cattle farmer.
Sacre bleu!

Seriously? They want socialism to protect them from capitalism? The French deserve whatever they get. As do many Americans.
