Meanwhile in France: Play it Again Sam

Hat tip Vlad Tepes and Gates of Vienna for videos.

If August is vacation month in France, February has been riot month. The riots over a police brutality allegation involving a young black man identified only as "Theo" are continuing. They have now spread to other cities and include demostrations against the National Front of Marine LePen.  This is the French left in action in what they call a "demonstration" (manifestation). The first is from Nantes.

Just to be safe, I checked my French dictionary. "Manifestation" does not include the translation of riot.

The French do have a word for riot -- emeute. I guess they use that word only when things get really violent.

And the word manifestation for the left means a demonstration that they intend to turn into a riot.
