French state-school teachers, parents and left-wing parties yesterday said 300,000 protesters would march through Paris tomorrow, despite the annulment of a disputed private-schools funding law, Reuter reports from Paris.

Organisers said the demonstration, likely to be the biggest since centre-right Prime Minister Edouard Balladur took office in March, would go ahead to warn the government against any further attempt to divert public cash to church schools.
