It’s May Day, so mayday!

Celebrate by petrol bombing some fast food or something!

Hundreds of hooded protesters caused chaos at an annual May Day demonstration in eastern Paris today, with some smashing the windows of a McDonald’s restaurant and hurling petrol bombs inside.

French police warned yesterday of possible clashes with far-left anarchist groups, known as Black Blocs, after a call on social media for a “Revolutionary Day”.

Authorities said some 1,200 hooded and masked protesters had turned up on the sidelines of today’s planned demonstration by labour unions.

Images also showed the smashed windows of a Renault garage on a road near the Austerlitz station and a construction vehicle in flames.

Ah, Springtime in the Big City.



Yes, off to a slow, meandering May. Thank you all for a terrific April. More and better!
