France's Socialist government Wednesday gave the go-ahead for a Paris march against its hotly-contested labor reforms, reversing a ban announced just hours earlier.President Francois Hollande had threatened the ban after the violence reached a peak in Paris on June 14, just four days after the start of the Euro 2016 football tournament in France.The government initially insisted on a stationary demonstration, saying it would be easier to control, but the seven unions and student groups organizing the demo dug in their heels for a march.The demonstration went ahead anyway, and nine people died as police suppressed the protest.The government and unions have blamed each other for recurring violence in the protests against the labor reforms.
