Bank on goodwill to poor men

About 200 protesters, including a philosopher and a bishop, crammed into the Bank of France to accuse the central bank of causing poverty with its free-market policies. The group marched into the bank's Paris headquarters and threatened to stay until they were granted an interview with governor Jean-Claude Trichet.

The bank scheduled a meeting for them with the vice-governor, Denis Ferman, later in the afternoon and the protesters agreed to leave after the talks. Reuters - Paris
