Protesters in Brittany breaking an Ecotax gantry (BZH POWEEEEERRRRR) ^^

France is under pressure from European partners to reduce its public deficit. That has led to tax rises and fueled rising discontent. Opinion polls show François Hollande with the lowest approval rating of any French president on record.

The protest is against a proposed tax on heavy goods vehicles, despite the government suspending plans for the tax during the week. Protesters took matters into their own hands.
