CITY ALIGHT

Car-b-q season in France begins early this year ...
image
This guy really hates hatchbacks. The destruction is happening only blocks from the Eiffel Tower, by the way:

Antoil Ethuin, 48, stood outside the shattered windows of his Bike’n'Roll rental shop on Thursday, stunned by the destruction of the worst violence in two weeks of student protests in Paris and other French cities.

“My country is broken,” said Mr Ethuin, gazing at the smouldering wrecks a few metres away and the carpet of glass shards, broken dishes and computer parts covering the footpath in the heart of one of the city’s most affluent suburbs.

“I never imagined I would ever see this in Paris.”

The cause: a proposed law that would allow employers to dismiss young workers without notice. Difficult to imagine anyone wanting to fire such evidently responsible and hard-working youngsters.

UPDATE. Jacques Chirac is deeply shocked.

UPDATE II. Run out of hatchbacks to stomp? Then attack each other!

UPDATE III. Paul Belien: “The French are reaping the harvest of their own stupid policies during the past decades.”
