    Esplanade des Invalides: a new anti-CPE demonstration today turned even more violent than Saturday. A couple of photographers have been beaten up by provovateurs, a few cameras stolen, and large riots erupted in different places of this huge esplanade. At least 3 cars have been burnt as well as part of a building.

    Here, the firemen are trying to flip one of the cars in order to get access to the reservoir and extinguish the fire.

      I guess agent provocateurs can be expected in a country which elects an odoriferous conservative leader. They must have learned something from the nazi visit.
