French Think Government's Economic Policy Is Merde

French Think Government's Economic Policy Is Merde

America has left the job of expressing populous rage to political satirists Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart. But in France, the people actually taken to the streets to protest the economy.

Demanding a boost in wages and greater protection from the economic crisis, the French marched with colorful posters, blocked the entrances to supermarkets, and disrupted railroad traffic today. In the city of Chartres, farmers blocked the entrance to the city with their tractors!

Participants in the 200-plus nationwide protests hope the marches will persuade their luxury-vacation-taking President Sarkozy to open a new round of talks on government economic policies.
