McDonald's Protester Sentenced
This is the second trial for the group; back in June, Bove was sentenced to a suspended ten-month prison term.
The French farmers are opposed to US-imposed, WTO-approved taxation of their main exports, foie gras, and Roquefort cheese. Bove states that McDonald's imposes on his simple way of life by peddling cheap, unhealthy food.
The highly publicized trial and local support of Bove and his claims has raised him to folk hero status among the French. His lawyers plan to appeal the sentence.
