Police skirmish with French protesters on road tax
Riot police use water canons to disperse protesters during clashes in Quimper, western France, Saturday, Nov. 2nd, 2013. Police and demonstrators, demanding jobs and a definitive end to an “eco-tax”, skirmished ahead of a protest march by at least 10,000 people in the Breton city of Quimper. Protesters threw stones at police who responded with water cannon and tear gas ahead of Saturday’s march which was held to send a strong message to the French government, which recently suspended the eco-tax, paid by trucks, for the western region of Brittany.
