Brittany workers occupy government building
Brittany workers occupy government building

Brittany witnessed dramatic scenes on Monday when workers at Tilly-Sabco, France’s second-largest producer of chicken products, used a tractor to break down the gate of a local government building in protest again the company’s decision to halt its exports, thereby risking thousands of jobs.

A demonstration by workers protesting the decision of French chicken producer Tilly-Sabco to halt its exports went awry on Monday afternoon when one protester used a tractor to break down the front door of a local government building.

The angry demonstrators lit a fire in the courtyard, and have since occupied the building, according to French daily Le Parisien.

The demonstration, which took place on Monday afternoon between the Tilly-Sabco headquarters in Guerlesquin, in the Finistère department of western Brittany and local government offices in Morlaix, was attended by around 150 to 200 workers as well as poultry farmers.

At around 3:30pm a protester was captured on video commandeering a tractor parked outside the building to break down the front door, clearing the way for the protesters who then filled the courtyard, as seen in this photo tweeted by Stéphane Journot. [...]

RE: Brittany workers occupy government building
30.000 people were in Kemper/Quimper last saturday, they protested against new ecotax who will kill agriculture and food processing industry. Also this food industry dismissed lot of natives lately and they employed cheap workers from Romania last month.





The funny thing is that they used red caps who is a symbol from an old revolt : Revolt of the Torrebens
It was nice to see Breton flags everywhere, very popular and patriotic with people from all sides. We will see if it's just ephemeral movement or if it becomes serious later.

^Lol, looks like an angry Soralien.

By the way, there are the same kind of protests in Italy now but policemen joined the people!
