From behind (a small screen)

As always, I walked randomly in a demonstration this weekend. Today anti-abortion movement where doing their annual «Walk of Life». I did a specific report on this (soon to be online), but I also took time to observe the media presence in the demonstration. There was maybe 2 or 3 TV crew, about 10 photographer like me, but also a huge amount of spectator shooting the demonstration from behind their cell phone or point and shoot camera.

But this doesn’t mean a highly animated place. I went for a night walk and I was amazed to see how the streets where empty compared to Paris night. It was around 10 pm and, in one hour, I saw about 10 cars and less than 5 persons and 3 cats in the street. What a strange sensation…

Occupy La Défense

Occupy La Défense

I covered the « Occupy Bastille/French revolution » a few month ago as the events were happening right under my windows (ok, maybe 100m away).

After a few month of inactivity and the Occupy Wall Street events, the movement came back as « Occupy La Défense ». The idea is to camp at the Défense (the Paris business neighborhood) until their claims are heard.
