France -Protest of security services -April 12, 2013

In protest over attacks and threats against them and visitors by pickpockets the security staff at the Louvre organised a wildcat action that did not go down well with many visitors. With nine million visitors a year, the museum cannot afford to close its doors for a day but unions warn they are ready to take further action if necessary. More than 100 staff stopped work to denounce raids by organised gangs which they said were growing in number and becoming ‘more aggressive’, targeting both visitors and staff in the vast galleries.
