Arab Today, arab today France asks farmers to end Paris blockade after driver\'s death

Paris - AFP

The French government Thursday ordered irate farmers blocking arterial roads to Paris to halt their latest protest over tax hikes after it caused accidents that left one person dead and six injured. Transport Minister Frederic Cuvillier called for the "immediate lifting" of the blockade which caused a crash that left a car driver dead. The victim was a fireman who was on his way to work. Six people suffered mild injuries in a second accident involving a tractor and an anti-riot police vehicle. Two unions from the Paris region, the FDSEA and JA, had announced a "blockade" on Paris Thursday to "make the voice of the agriculture sector, which has been sacrificed, heard." They complained their members were being "bludgeoned" by tax rises as well as by "more and more demanding environmental norms, increasing checks and stronger regulatory mechanisms." President Francois Hollande's government has already been forced to suspend the planned introduction of a new environmental "ecotax" on commercial vehicles carrying cargo more than 3.5 tonnes after violent protests in Brittany, a predominantly agricultural region in northern France. Opponents of the tax, which critics say unfairly penalises remote areas dependent on deliveries by road freight, are demanding it be scrapped altogether.
