THE PLUMBERS CRACK:

Polish workers hurl protests at French embassy (Andrew Rettman, 15.07.2005, EU Observer)

Between 500 and 800 Polish workers marked Bastille Day (14 July) by throwing missiles at the French embassy in Warsaw and shouting protests about the behaviour of French investors in Poland.

The demonstration was largely peaceful, with the workers stopping to observe the two minutes' silence for the London dead at 13:00 CET, but later burning an image of the Paris Bastille building outside the French mission, PAP and Rzeczpospolita report.
