Photos- Large Oct. 2nd demonstration in Paris

against Sarkozy's pension reform.

Today was the third national demonstration against changing the retirement laws. There is another scheduled for Oct. 12. Today's turnout seems to be about the same as on Sept. 23; between 900,000 and 3,000,000 nationally depending on who you believe. I'm not sure it would matter to Sarkozy if 10,000,000 showed up. The right would just say "but what about the 55,000,000 who didn't show up?" They're so much like the Republicans in the U.S. it's scary.

I didn't go today but Mme. LEP went with estHer and other family members. I gave her my little Canon Elph and asked her to take some photos for Eurotrib.

                           

                           

I'll post a few more photos in the comments section.

yes, thank you, from the other side of the pond, LEP - I have shared with women friends in Yellow Springs, Ohio where we used to live (trop cher) and here in Indiana where we now live under the wonderful Governor Daniels, who thinks deregulation and regressive tax code is still the best, and is a darling of those who say he'll be Repub VP candidate ... my best regards to Mme LEP!
