French farm protests continue

JAILED sheep farmer, French farm union leader and protest standard bearer JosÈ BovÈ has been refused bail for his part in a raid on a hamburger restaurant.

French farmers stepped up their protests yesterday following the decision by a court in Montpellier with several demonstrations in towns and cities.
