French Student Riots or Take the Piste?

Yeah, students are revolting. In Paris, Lyon, Rennes - even the French island of Réunion in the Indian Ocean. What do they want? To fight the Police. When do they want it? Now. It's a bit more complicated than that - all to do with a new law that allows an employer to fire your arse within the first two years if he doesn't like your face. Anyway...I'd rather be skiing than watch the dreadlocks storm the Sorbonne. But if you wanna get into it - the Cpe - check out the tension for the latest.

I put up a short video over on the Video Blog. It didn't work out as I expected. It was too hard trying to hold on to the camera and ski at the same time. Here are some stills taken in Valloire in the Savoie (Savoy) Region of the High Alps.
