Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Up to 50 000 people in Toulouse, apparently. Which means the movement is only getting stronger (was 30 000 last time). Which isn't so bad for a town this size.

I sensed that this time around a lot of older people were here, as the students must have been tired after their own demonstration on Thursday. Besides the weather sucked, so that would have discouraged a lot of people (ie. 2 friends who were supposed to go with me changed their mind when they saw droplets of rain and heavy clouds and wind).

Altogether 1 145 000 in the streets of France, according to AFP.

About the match, Wales was supposed to win, they were robbed of a well-deserved victory by the video referee.
