Protesters liken Hollande to Sarkozy

Thousands of far-left opposition protesters take to the streets in Paris. They've had it with French President Francois Hollande's economic policies. They're likening it to his predecessor Nicolas Sarkozy. Protester and Local politician Isabelle Bozzani is fed up. (SOUNDBITE) (French) PROTESTER AND LOCAL POLITICIAN, ISABELLE BOZZANI, SAYING: "Socialists are on the left, it's the left. But this is not a government of the left, it's a government of the right. It follows the same path as Sarkozy did, all the way. And actually I'd even say it's worse. Because with Sarko at least we knew, it's the right, we knew, we expected the worst. But now they're Socialists and we expected left-wing measures but no!" The protest, which includes French communists and the New Anti-capitalist Party, say Hollande's government is increasing income inequality. Hollande had vowed to make an enemy of the world of finance during the economic crisis of 2012.
