"CONTINUONS LE DEBUT!" French slogan from today's movement on the streets of France that translates to; "Let's Continue the Beginning!"
Two French participants of the social movement against Neo-Liberal "reforms" hang around Oakland this week and are interested in sharing with people their experiences.
Another slogan popular amongst protesters; "Water Boils at 100* C, We Boil at 49.3". On May 10th French Prime Minister Valls and his government used the 49.3 constitution article to pass repressive "reforms" with force.
This is an informal talk of a movement that is on-going. Perhaps there is some parallel to local movements that people can share their own experiences including; Black Lives Matter, Occupy, Fight for $15 an Hour, Dreamers/Anti ICE that shows how the issues here have similar aspects to the uprising in France.
