I'm the person who lives in Paris. I live in the 17th district, which is about a 10 minute walk from the Arc de Triumph. The protests were held in
what is essentially the poor areas of Paris, the same place where the very large riots occurred a couple of years ago. In Central Paris, there was
nothing to speak of. Metro fine, traffic normal, cabs running, no service disrupted and I was all over the city from 10 am until about 2am. I was
not in the ghettos, where most of this kind of thing typically happens over here
The protests were heavier in the more industrial cities, but as you look at the videos, they are all at ground level and it is difficult to ascertain
how many folks were there due to the lack of elevation.
