Dirty protest as huge pile of manure dumped at France’s National Assembly

January 17 2014, 17:31

It’s a fresh French take on a dirty protest – a truck today dumped a huge pile of manure outside a government building in Paris, reports.

The lorry, which had the slogan “Hollande and the whole political class out”, left the cargo outside France’s National Assembly.

Its driver was reportedly arrested and taken to a police station in the seventh arrondissement of Paris.

News agency AFP reportedly received the following message, just as the manure was being left: “At this very moment … a French just expressed his anger at the national assembly Hollande! enough! This is the message he wanted to convey and whose president will long remember.”

Last November French farmers blocked roads around Paris in a protest over EU agriculutural reforms and rising taxes.

One particular issue is the eco-tax for HGVs, which aims to reduce the environmental impact of road freight transport.
