i used to think it was a little obnoxious... now i think it's wonderful and healthy and essential. there are an average of two protests every single day in france, usually at least one of them in paris. the first demonstration below was against the new french law banning headscarves and other religious clothing in public schools. i happily participated, having taught religious and intellectually devoted students in turkey who suffered from the same rule (that has been in place in turkey far longer than in france).
