Success of Demonstration and Rally in Brittany

Quimper, capital of Finistère in Brittany witnessed a sea of Breton flags on Saturday 2nd November 2013 as an estimated 20,000 to 30,000 protestors took to the streets. What started as a movement against the French government‘s ’eco-tax’, which would have put an unfair burden on Breton producers and traders, has become a campaign for the protection of jobs, economy and the Breton way of life. As the campaign gained ground a fearful French government announced a suspension of the ‘eco-tax’. However, many recognise that the only way to achieve successful and long term prosperity for Brittany is independence.
