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.
