French Farmers Snarl Roads Into Paris in Hollande Tax Protest

French farmers snarled traffic into Paris as they drove tractors onto highways to protest against taxes and new regulations.

A total of seven roadblocks were up in the Paris region, according to the website of DiRiF, which runs the area’s road network, and which advised commuters to take public rail transport. Television news channels showed long lines of blocked traffic under rainy skies and near-freezing temperatures.
