Around 17,000 people staged a ‘Day of Anger’ demonstration in central Paris to slam French President Francois Hollande’s policies.
Protesters carried banners that read, “The French are angry!” along with signs portraying Hollande wearing donkey ears with a school grade of Zero which read, “You, President Resign.”
The demonstrators marched from Place de la Bastille to Les Invalides, braving rainy weather as they went along.
The rally was organized by a group of around 50 small and mainly right-wing organizations.
The demonstrators gathered to protest against France’s struggling economy, high unemployment, high taxes, and lack of personal freedoms.
“Today they are taking our money from all sides. There are new taxes all the time. We have had enough!” protester Johan Bonnain told AP
