A few pics of last Sunday's meeting of the "Front de Gauche" party.
This is a very left-wing party (I'm talking American here). It is believed to get something like 10% of votes in the next presidential election. Objective (unsaid): weigh on the Socialist party (whose candidate is the favourite, but whose policies are general center-left, unlike the party's name) to get it to have a pro-left policy.
Enough said, and move on to the pictures.
A constitutional-cyclo: that guy has written text on a new constitution and advertises for it on his bike.

Crowd is getting crowdy at the start of the walk from Nation to Bastille.
An anarchist calling for a vote?
JJ. Rousseau is with us!
Street theater: the history of the "Commune de Paris"
The Bastille place is full!!
Having started at half past two, we arrived two hours later at Bastille, and were unable to step on the place itself, because of the crowd. The place behind the column was full too, according to a friend of mine who was on the other side (and whom I couldn't meet!)
A truly awesome answer to the Sarkozy's meeting in Villepinte last week.
