May '68 is back!
You heard about new riots in Paris right? This time no burned cars in the suburbs, but a much more classic student protest against a new law that the government passed - too difficult to explain here. I took this photo in front of the Sorbonne University yesterday on my way home. It is hard to translate, but it reminds me of the slogan that could be seen in May 1968 (although I was too young to actually remember!). This one is a cute little rhyming slogan to protest the CRS police intervention at the university. Roughly translated it says, "Less Police, more petting (or caressing)"!
