Ghosts of '68?

The battle lines have been drawn. (on banner: "forbidden to forbid.") Sego rallies for the old student socialist movement. Sarkozy is dressed in riot gear; the new face of the police during his tenure as minister of the interior.

People are voting in greater numbers than ever in France. There have been grim warnings of manifestations and even civil unrest. This is going to be interesting. Interesting, but frightening.
