Demonstration for better housing
How to attract attention on France's housing problems? By invading empty buildings and inviting the media to attend the operation! I happened to witness such a "commando action", last Thursday, as I was walking around my neighborhood to take photos. The protesters managed to occupy a 5 000 sq meter building (previously used by a school) and threatened the authorities to stay, just like they do rue de la banque (see this post and this one). Only this time the Police got them out a few hours only, after they got into the building. See the whole process in photos in this little video.
