New violence in protests over French labour reforms

Demonstrators protest against the government's planned labour reforms in Nantes, western France on April 9, 2016Sporadic violence erupted as tens of thousands of people took to the streets in dozens of French cities on Saturday in the latest protests against labour reforms seen as threatening workers’ rights. Police and protesters clashed in western Rennes and Nantes as well as Paris, leaving several injured, as demonstrations across the country aimed to keep up pressure against the reforms, which will make it easier for struggling companies to fire workers. From Paris to northern Lille, to eastern Strasbourg and southwestern Toulouse, some 200 cities saw protests over “The Bosses’ Law”, as it was dubbed on a marcher’s banner in Toulouse.
