Testimonial from French protests

from decasia: critique of academic culture by eli

So as everyone who reads the news has probably heard, there has been a major ?social movement? here the last few weeks, basically opposing the government?s reform of the pension system. There have been a number of street protests, major strikes of public transit and railroad workers, and fuel shortages because of industrial strikes. I?m not going to take the time to give links to these ongoing stories, because you can look it all up on google. (I recommend French-language coverage, if possible, and otherwise maybe the BBC. Americans seem to be prone to idiotic analyses like this one.)
