Manifestation paisible à Marseille / Peaceful protest in Marseille
The manifestation today in Marseille France, in protest of the CPE, was even bigger than last week with people stretching across the entire city. Again it was a peaceful almost family event. There was never a feeling of tension, only groups of people screaming their slogans and holding their banners. Visited the Prefecture and the Hotel de Ville, normally hotspots for aggresive activity, and there was nothing happening.
This young man is simply holding a flare, nothing more. I like the red light on his face.
To the media that want to make this into a violent story, I say YOU SUCK. When the demonstration was over most people wanted to just go to a cafe with friends and have coffee and beer. VERY Marseille.
Vive le Marseille.
