A week before the 2nd round of the French election, eurosceptic presidential hopeful Marine Le Pen has reminded her supporters that the "euro is dead" and should be left only for international trade, while France should regain control and reintroduce the Franc.
"We need to control the currency, to adjust it to the economy because today the single currency is a burden," Le pen said ahead of May 7 French presidential election, stressing that the "euro is dead."
"We will have a national currency like all other countries, and we will have a common currency together," Le Pen said in in an interview with Le Parisien.

At least one of the People's Climate March rallies scheduled for Saturday in Colorado was cancelled as a result of a major snowstorm, providing climate skeptics with a good chuckle.
The Colorado Springs march, one of 12 slated to take place in Colorado, was canceled late Friday after heavy snow began falling across the Front Range, with more than a foot accumulating in some areas, as reported by Western Wire.
"Sometimes Mother Nature throws you a curveball!" said the Colorado Springs Council for Justice in a Friday post 350 Colorado Springs. "We know we aren't in the business of risking anyone's safety. Dangerous conditions and wet heavy snow in the forecast for tomorrow."
More than 100 marchers braved the cold at a rally Saturday at Civic Center Park in Denver, where the snow was so heavy that someone was able to build a snowman, as shown in photos posted online.
The website Complete Colorado ran a photo of a man on skis with the headline, "Heading to the Global Warming Rally Today."
