Three Strikes and You’re Just Getting Started

French Transportation

There are always strikes in France, of greater or lesser severity. Sometimes they are just minor disturbances, necessitating a reroute of the daily commute. Sometimes they are catastrophic, as when all transportation came to a grinding halt a few years ago. On the metro we saw the scene above, a merry band of strikers, happily protesting something or other. You have to understand that the right to strike in France is considered a basic freedom, one that must be indulged in frequently in order to stay in shape.
