Leftists Protest in France Against Fiscal Restraint

Thousands of protesters marched through Paris on Sunday against a European fiscal pact, the first major display of public anger to face President Francois Hollande since his May election.

The march organized by the Left Front coalition drew trade unionists, far-left sympathizers and other opponents of the EU accord, two days before lawmakers start to debate a draft law of the budget pact in the lower house of parliament.
