The first time I saw a "manifestation" in Paris I thought it was wild! Now I realize that filming it was a "newbie" mistake. Everyone knows that there's a strike at least once a month (usually more). It is the "national sport of France." Well-- this one is protesting abortion --and was in December 2007. The one I saw yesterday (Feb. 19, 2009)--not sure. I saw a man sporting a sticker that said "Viva la greve!" (Long Live the Strike!). There were a lot of students and professors. The big, national strike on Jan. 29, 2009 was because people were protesting that they didn't have enough money on account of the financial crisis.
