This will surely end all the protesting
, right?French President Jacques Chirac has announced that the new youth employment law that sparked weeks of sometimes violent protests will be scrapped.
He said it would be replaced by other measures to tackle youth unemployment.But some students appeared unwilling to abandon their protest.
Many had wanted the entire law to be revoked, not just the article introducing the employment contract.
"Our demands have not really been met," Lise Prunier, a student at the University of Paris-Jussieu told the Associated Press.
