French students are at it again! This time it’s all about insane new labour laws.
From the Guardian Unlimited:
It’s like a reprise of the May 1968 protests. The CRS riot police cruise the streets of the Latin Quarter in Paris, breaking up groups of protesters, and storm the Sorbonne where students staged a three-day occupation last week. Between 51 and 64 of France’s 82 universities are now disrupted by the wave of angry protests.
This is amazing, and although most of the protesting is overshadowed by senseless vandalism, I’m glad there are still countries in Europe where people are not too lethargic to actually go out and protest.
