I Love Paris in the Springtime

Paris has erupted once again, this time workers and students protesting.

CNN reports: "The protests have provided a useful rallying point for left- wing parties and unions who were set to meet on Monday to decide on their course of action.

"We've got to continue our mobilisation ... The prime minister is like a pyromaniac who has set fire to the valley and then withdraws to the hill to watch," said Jean-Claude Mailly, secretary general of the Workers Force union.

Unions and the left were in favour of a general strike on March 23, said Olivier Besancenot, a popular young Trotskyite leader."

There is a flickr pool with photos from the demos (some quite spectacular).
