A major protest organized by French taxi drivers turned violent Monday, as demonstrators attacked Uber cars outside Paris two main airports. As Le Monde reports, the nationwide demonstrations were organized by five major taxi unions, which are protesting the unfair competition that Uber and other chauffeur services pose. Kat Borlongan, co-founder of consulting firm Five by Five, was traveling from the Charles de Gaulle airport Monday morning when her Uber car was attacked by protesters. Attackers tried to get in the car but our brave @uber driver maneuvered us to safety, changed the tire on the freeway and got us home. — Kat Borlongan (@KatBorlongan) January 13, 2014
