FRANCE-ENVIRONMENT-AIRPORT-PROTEST

A municipal agent removes graffiti reading 'ZAD-zone to be defended' from a tramway station in Nantes, western France, on February 23, 2014 a day after protesters stage a demonstration against plans to build the Notre-Dames-des-Landes airport for the French city of Nantes. Protesters smashed shop windows on February 22 and hurled paving stones at police, who answered with tear gas and rubber bullets. Tens of thousands of protesters against building the airport on protected swampland swarmed the western city's Petite Hollande square, the latest in a string of demonstrations against the pet project of Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault.
