Approximately 2,500 sheep took to the streets of Marseille, in southern France, on Nov. 9 as part of a demonstration of breeders and shepherds who are protesting the crisis in the ovine sector and demanding more government assistance.
The banner reads:”Barnier, go to the end …; Sarko, think about us!!” (Michel Barnier is France’s agricultural minister, and Sarko, of course, refers to President Nicolas Sarkozy.)
