What Are My Neighbours Up To?

 Enough with the USA politics, let's look at what is happening around here:) The French are having some very impressive protests. Yesterday they actually stormed BlackRock headquarters in Paris:

 France faces another wave of widespread protests and strikes following an unproductive discussion between the prime minister and labor unions. The failure to reach a compromise on the unpopular pension reform, which extends the working years for individuals, has fueled two-and-a-half months of public discontent.

Notice that they've been at it for 2.5 months already and show no sign of slowing down:

 We noted early that pension protestors in France were gathered outside of BlackRock's Paris headquarters. The protestors have now stormed the building.

The building was taken over by the railway workers, presumably led by their trade unions. In France, they still have the remnants of the traditional (non-woke) worker's rights Left and their organising skills are most admirable. 

OFF TOPIC: Last, but not least, it is Good Friday today! Somehow my religious posts don't draw that much attention, so I'll just leave it over here:

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
