Far-left protests in Paris against Hollande's reforms

Text size Aa Aa

In Paris, far left-wing protesters took to the streets to criticise the policies of socialist president Francois Hollande.

It comes after a cabinet re-shuffle and the announcement of spending cuts to reduce the country’s public deficit.

The demonstrators say the plans do nothing to boost growth or cut unemployment which stands at 10 percent.

It bodes ill for the socialists who expect to poll third in the upcoming European elections after right wing parties.
