Hundreds of French entertainment workers disrupted the Cannes Film Festival by storming a theatre, smashing windows an engaging police. The workers have been protesting planned government unemployment benefit cuts. Three police and three demonstrators were injured, including one who went to a hospital with a head injury. Elsewhere in the city a peaceful march led by superstar leftist filmmaker Michael Moore and celebrity anti-globalization farmer Jose Bove received a little notice.
