  • Description

    PARIS FORGOT THE LAST THREE WEEKS OF RIOTS AND STRIKES TODAY (SUNDAY) AND TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THE WHITSUN HOLIDAY. THE BOULEVARDS BASKED IN THE SUMMER SUNSHINE AND MANY TOURISTS INVADED THE FRENCH CAPITAL. THE LIDO AND MOULIN ROUGE WERE LOW ON THEIR LIST OF PRIORITIES. INSTEAD THEIR CAMERAS WERE TRAINED ON THE LATIN QUARTER, WHERE PARIS STUDENTS HAD BATTLED IT OUT WITH RIOT POLICE.

    WILL PARIS BE BACK TO NORMAL IN THE NEAR FUTURE? THE ANSWER WON'T BE CLEAR UNTIL TUESDAY WHEN THE WHITSUN HOLIDAY ENDS. ALTHOUGH THERE ARE INDICATIONS THAT SOME STRIKERS ARE READY TO RESUME WORK, MANY OF THEM ARE STILL HOLDING OUT IN THEIR DEMANDS FOR CONCESSIONS FROM GOVERNMENT AND EMPLOYERS. MILITANT SORBONNE STUDENTS, WHO LAUNCHED THE WAVE OF NATIONAL UNREST WHEN THEY TOOK TO THE STREETS THREE WEEK AGO, REMAIN DEFIANT. ISOLATED BY THE GRADUAL RETURN TO NORMAL THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY, STUDENT LEADERS ARE STRIVING TO REVIVE LAGGING INTEREST AMONG THEIR FOLLOWERS BUT ARE NOT MEETING WITH MUCH SUCCESS.
