France: Anti Marriage Equality Protesters Ordered to Pay 100K Euro Clean-Up Cost After Rally

Written by scott on January 16th, 2013

Paris, FranceThe Mayor of Paris Bertrand Delanoe has imposed a hefty cleaning bill on the organisers of a march opposing same-sex marriage.

Last Sunday’s ‘March for All’ attracted an estimated 340,000 to 800,000 people to the Champs-de-Mars. The march was held to oppose an upcoming piece of legislation which would give marriage and adoption rights to same-sex couples in France.

Mr Delanoe issued the organisers of the march with the heavy invoice of [euro]100,000 (#83,000) in order to cover costs of restoring the grass on the Champs-de-Mars, a large public green near the Eiffel Tower.
