FRANCE-SWITZERLAND-OIL-DEMO

Employees of Petroplus oil refinery distribute leaflets at a gas station of the A13 highway after blocking the road on October 26, 2012 in the highway, 10km from Rouen, northwestern France. The court in Rouen ordered the liquidation of Petroplus on October 16, 2012, despite two offers for the site that employs 470 people. The court left open the possibility for other bidders to come forward by November 5 however, amid widespread anger among the refinery's workers.
