La Grève

I recorded this video a few hours ago and wish I had waited until now (it's about 5pm). Tensions are higher; chants louder; men in yellow vests have formed strategic lines in the crowd. Wouldn't want to step outside at the moment; reminds me too much of The Dreamers, and damned if I'll be Michael Pitt for my generation.

(If for some odd reason you wanna know what I'm mumbling in the background, no worries. Just click on the video; the full text is thar.)

Uploaded some photos and included the terms of the national strike, as well as figures from earlier today (75,000, says AFP), on flickr. But really, the only way to read French rage is en français. Have at it.
