French farmers raid McDonald’s
FRENCH farmers protesting at a 100% duty imposed by the USA on some European foods took over a McDonalds in Paris to make their point.
The duty comes into effect today as a reprisal for the European Unions refusal to allow the sale in Europe of American beef raised with hormones.
