Those who follow me on Facebook have probably seen the photo I posted this morning. It showed a bunch of tractors on the Périphérique (the motorway that goes around Paris). They were heading to a meeting point before taking part in a big, unusual demonstration of farmers who protest against their living conditions. About 1,000 tractors invaded the streets of Paris between Bastille and Nation, and believe me, it was quite impressive. The Parisians were quite supportive even though, this triggered a giant traffic jam! See more photo in this Animoto.
