The CPE law has been promulgated on 2 April, but President Jacques Chirac pledged that it would be amended and the government asked employers not to apply it immediately. Meanwhile, the anti-CPE movement hasn't backed down: a national strike was called and massive rallies were held throughout France on April 4th, drawing as many participants as on March 28th (1 to 3 millions nation-wide). Riots erupted again at the end of the demonstration, Place d'Italie.
Here, the same guy who knocked out a protester a minute later is throwing a stone.
In the right background, Charlotte Gonzalez who was shooting with me that day, "hiding" between the trouble-makers.
