    Background: A peaceful protest march through Paris by about 15-thousand left-wing demonstrators ended in a violent clash with police on Monday evening (February 28). The protest was against the shooting death last week of militant Pierre Overnay, killed at a Renault factory, when a Maoist group tried to force entry to distribute pamphlets. The events, coinciding with growing student unrest over proposed teacher training reforms, have recalled the 1968 student-worker uprising in Paris.
