French Police Subdue Riots Over Jobs Law
PARIS (March 19) - Police loosed water cannons and tear gas on rioting students and activists rampaged through a McDonald's and attacked store fronts in the capital Saturday as demonstrations against a plan to relax job protections spread in a widening arc across France. The protests, which drew 500,000 people in some 160 cities across the country, were the biggest show yet of escalating anger that is testing the strength of the conservative government before elections next year.
At the close of a march in Paris that drew a crowd of tens of thousands, seven officers and 17 protesters were injured during two melees, at the Place de la Nation in eastern Paris and the Sorbonne University. Police said they arrested 156 people in the French capital.
...Protests on Saturday reached every corner of France _ most of them largely peaceful _ with organizers citing 160 marches from the small provincial town of Rochefort in the southwest to the major city of Lyon in the southeast.
The Paris protest march was the biggest, attracting some 80,000 people, according to police. Organizers put the number at 300,000.

France and other countries know the dangers of such additives in foods and won't allow certain drugs to be used in medicine because they know how it affects the brain. Everything from lethargy, to short term memory loss, foggy minds, inability to focus, and a host of other BRAIN disorders are the wonderful benefits of the junk food and even "wholesome" food industry in America.
Think about the reality of this fact. Polls have proven that over 80% of the American people KNOW or at least "feel" the American government was involved in 911. Yet do you see 500,000 people protesting in Washington D.C.?
Why does America do this? One would think that is a no-brainer! (pun intended)
