Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Except for the killing of the innocent person , I am very happy about this revolt. I do not justify it, I just say I am happy (and let the comments roll)

It is actually a social revolt of the poor and disenfranchised. I doubt any middle class guy spends the time burning cars or schools.

It is really time for a wake-up call showing the inequalities of this, our old Europe. Time to get real and face the problem: young people in the suburbs are treated like shit. No wonder they revolt and act like one.

We will see how the revolt goes on, I hope it will be useful although I am not sure. One think I can tell you, would have I been living in the suburbs I bet you I will be the first one burning cars and schools.

I still wonder why this does not happen more often given the grave exploitation in other areas in Europe.

A pleasure.

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude
