Demonstrations and Counter Demonstrations ou plus de CRS que d'étudiants dans le Quartier Latin...

Just a short message and a pic to show what is happening in the street behind my Uni...
It's been two-three weeks now that the students' movement against the law I wrote about has taken a particularly important dimension...
After the occupation of the University of the Sorbonne last Friday, there is security and armed police all over the area.
Unfortunately, I haven't been able to take pics of the (massive) demonstrations taking place in Paris everyday, and particularly today....
And now these demonstrations include demonstrations against the law which usually are in favour of the occupation of the universities AND demonstrations protesting against the occupation of the Universities (in order to have classes again, which are called "counter demonstrations").

hi Mimi could i ask what camera do you use? I like your pictures and really like this one, u have an eye for landscape photography. Do you particularly like city pics or is that just what you're most used to taking?

protests against protests. France sounds so much more interesting than england.

Thank you ! :)
Actually my camera is a simple one, it is NIKON COOLPIX 2200.
And for the city pics, well actually it's just that I try to have a camera with me wherever I go, and when I find something amusing, strange or nice I take a pic. And since I live in the city...
I don't know how to really take pictures, never studied it, and I've never asked (yet) someone to explain some basic rules, so those pics are just about being at the right place, at the right time, when the light is good... with my camera in my bag...
