The residents of Saint-Pol-sur-Ternoise, a small town in France, are protesting to demand that a McDonald's open in their town. Hundreds have taken to the streets to call on "local authorities to back down on their decision to suspend the construction" of the McDonald's due to zoning regulations. The locals were hoping an outlet of the fast food giant would provide jobs as well as add to the "culinary and social life of the small town." [Telegraph][Photo]
