French protesters

I saw my first French protesters today. They were in their cars!

About the time I got up to my office this morning, I heard a bunch of honking outside. I looked out the window and a cop had blocked off half of the roundabout and a line of vans drove by honking for about 10 minutes. I guess it was probably some construction union, or something like that. I’ve never seen a protest carried out completely from the comfort of cars. Germany was much more serious about their protests, often with an incredible number of people on foot.

My coworker told me last week that car is king here in France. Now I see what he means.
