VIEW: French Far-Left Leader Doused with Flour by Protester

PARIS (AP)– A French far-left leader got a faceful of flour at the start of a Paris march Saturday against “the concepts of the far right,” days after the French president was slapped while welcoming a crowd.

Unions, associations and leftist political parties in France have called for presentations around France, a week before regional elections and ahead of next year’s governmental voting that is widely anticipated to put far-right candidate Marine Le Pen in the final round.

Legislator Jean-Luc Melenchon, head of the far-left France Unbowed party, was taking part in the event in Paris when he got hit with a sack of flour. Melenchon has actually been at the centre of current debate for declarations against Le Pen’s National Rally.
