France, Thou Dost Protest Too Much
Recent protests in France were so successful that China is now considering a retaliatory strike against French products.
In the meantime, I caught an article written by a former activist from Poland:
I remember 14 December 1981. Arm in arm with trade union leaders, Andrzej Seweryn, Zbyszek Kowalewski and I were leading a demonstration protesting against the introduction of the martial law in Poland. We had 100,000 Parisians behind us, nowhere else did as many people take to the street.
How I was proud of that city then. And today I’m proud of it again.
I don’t support boycotts, nor are you likely to find me at a protest rally, but it does seem that actions in France have caught China’s attention — and isn’t that interesting?
