French Syndicalists Defend Income Tax Refusers

An excerpt from a dispatch to the New York Times:

Among the working classes [in France] the income tax still meets with great opposition, extremist Syndicalist organizations supporting the workmen who evade the application of the law. a large crowd of Syndicalists and out-of-work laborers gathered in St. Denis in order to prevent seizure by bailiffs of the belongings of two of their comrades who refused to pay the income tax. The red flag was hoisted and speeches were delivered, but the police remained absent and the bailiffs did not appear.
