    Background: POLICE TODAY (WEDNESDAY) FRUSTRATED AN ATTEMPT BY PARIS TAXI DRIVERS TO STAGE A MOTORISED DEMONSTRATION OUTSIDE THE PRESIDENTIAL PALACE 'IN PROTEST AGAINST AN ALLEGED BLACK MARKET IN SPECIAL CAB LICENSES.

    THE TAXIMEN HAD PLANNED TO DRIVE IN PROCESSION AROUND THE ELYSEE PALACE DURING THE WEEKLY CABINET MEETING THERE. BUT POLICE USING TWO-WAY RADIOS DISPERSED THEM AND PREVENTED EMPTY CABS FROM WAITING IN THE AREA.

    BUT THE PROTEST STILL DEPRIVED PARISIANS OF TAXIS. THEY STOOD WAITING VAINLY WHILE THE DRIVERS ARGUED WITH POLICE AND CAUSED TRAFFIC JAMS IN THE CHAMPS ELYSEES.
