Ils Ne Nous Représentent Pas: Paris Occupies the Trocadéro

Posted 11 years ago on April 22, 2012, 4:58 a.m. EST by OccupyWallSt

Yesterday, people from across France converged in Paris ahead of French national elections. Seizing upon the elections as an opportunity to demonstrate alternatives to a party system that merely serves the interests of bankers and the European financial elite, Réelle Démocratie Maintenant occupied public space to declare, ¨They do not represent us!¨

Paris is the first French city to re-occupy. Les Indignés have established an encampment at the Trocadéro and have experienced major police harassment. At least two people have already been arrested. The Occupiers are planning a communal meal, general assembly, and discussions on debt and other topics today. Tous à Paris sont invités à participer!

Follow on Facebook and Twitter: @AcampadaParis, #PrintempsFrancais.

The rest of Europe will be re-occupying during twin days of action on May 12th and May 15th. For more information, see here and here.
