A riot and clashes with police turned the Paris artistic Montmartre quarter into mayhem Wednesday night.
The protests began as thousands of college students gathered near the Sorbonne university, AFP reports. The student rally turned into chaos involving some 150,000 individuals. The demonstrators have clashed with police, supermarket windows and those of two banks were broken.
The reasons for the student's protest Tuesday night remain unclear. Just a day earlier 200,000 of them blocked the Paris Institute of Political Studies in sign of protest against the inequalities in France's secondary education.
Here in America, a few dozen march with signs in front of AGI headquarters in New York. The rest of us sit home, licking our wounds, as our 401K's zero out. Are the French hotheads or are we pussies?
