French farmers, anarchists unite in airport fight

FILE - This Nov. 24, 2012 file photo shows French gendarmes detaining a protester during an evacuation operation on land that will become the new airport in Notre-Dame-des-Landes, western France. An unlikely alliance of anarchists and beret-wearing farmers is creating a headache for President Francois Hollande’s beleaguered government by mounting an escalating Occupy Wall Street-style battle that has delayed construction on the ambitious airport near the city of Nantes for months.
