Strasbourg, France (French Republic)
HIGHWAY BLOCKADE NEAR BORDER WITH GERMANY.
A car passes between two trucks blocking the way on the French/German border east of Strasbourg January 10. Traffic was held up all along France's borders as French trucking company owners set up road blocks barring entry to the country in a one-day protest against shorter work week and higher fuel prices. The sign reads "The hauliers of Alsace... The fuel (price) will kill us... as well as Aubry" referring to France's minister of employment and solidarity Martine Aubry.
