Thousands Rally Against Labor Law In Paris

Tens of thousands of people rallied in Paris under heavy police presence yesterday for a protest against a planned change of labor laws that would make hiring and firing easier.

The Eiffel Tower closed for the day as staff stopped work to join the protest, making it impossible to ensure safe running of France’s biggest tourist attraction, the operating company said. After violent clashes between riot police and masked youths during previous demonstrations, 130 would-be troublemakers were banned from central Paris to limit the risk of more skirmishes, according to Paris Police Prefect Michel Cadot.
