French protest against proposed transport tax

Main protests in held in Brittany, which will be affected more than others due to dependence on agriculture.

    More demonstrations have been held in France against a new tax on commercial transport.

    Workers vented their fury, even though the government has already agreed to suspend the levy. The main protests occurred in the northwestern town of Quimper, in the Brittany region.

    Brittany will be affected more than other regions by the proposed tax because of its dependence on agriculture.

    Al Jazeera's Tim Friend reports from Quimper.
