Demonstrations season

I had a lunch in the 15th arrondissement yesterday and on my way I passed by Les Invalides and saw lot of smoke. I first thought of a giant BBQ(!), but in fact it was a demonstration. France is going through a tough economical phase at the moment and people are afraid to lose their benefits so they try to draw the government's attention! It's complicated... If you want to understand better, have a look at this excellent article (in English).


  1. Colourful, even as a protest.

    It's common here to see protestors on our Parliament Hill.

  2. Or they could do what certain (ahem) Parisians are doing and just leave the country!

  3. You got very close to that flame, Eric. Be careful, we love you!

    1. Nah.... My camera did ;-) But that's sweet of you to say.

  4. Bonjour,
    superbe photo !

    Je suis artiste-styliste en auto-entreprise et organise samedi 26 juillet prochain un défilé-performance pour le lancement de la marque que j'ai créée, avec une ligne de T-shirt.
    Cet événement aura lieu in situ, au Trocadéro à 15h.

    Il y a un appel de photo expliqué sur le site!
    Je serais ravie de vous voir participer !

    N'hésitez pas à visiter le site internet régulièrement pour les actualisations
