French working class rally for their presidential hopeful

Standard

Thousands of people have turned out to rally in support France’s far-left presidential candidate Jean-Luc Melenchon.

Some 30,000 people joined in a march at Paris’ Place de la Nation.

Melenchon – who’s a staunch anti-capitalist -has verbally attacked France’s political elite, a move analysts say is helping him shake up the campaign.

Opinion polls show he’s surpassed the symbolic 10 percent mark, with only five weeks to go before the first round of voting on 22nd April.
