Officer is set alight and 62 arrested in Paris as citizens take to the streets in protest at new labour laws

SHARE:


For the fourteenth time in just six months, thousands of trade unionists poured into the streets to show their displeasure at new labour laws which give employers leeway to extend the working week and lay off staff. They were passed last summer with the aim of liberalising the employment market, making it easier for bosses to hire and fire. But opponents say they are an attack on hard-won worker rights, all of which are now in peril. 

Protesters pelted the police with wood, stones and sticks while one officer was set alight when one Molotov cocktail hit him. At least five officers were treated for injuries, including burns and 62 arrests were made in Paris. Police had to use teargas to disperse the boisterous crowds.
