Party Time with the Workers' Struggle

"Karl Marx Tent"? "Women's Liberation Lane"? "Political Town"? "European Workers Lane"? "Toilets"? Yes, that's right. I must be at the annual celebration of Lutte Ouvrière, France's Marxist-Trotskyist party aka Workers' Struggle.

Next to city of science, the Middle Ages (finally) explained:
"The 1,000 years between the fall of the Roman Empire and the beginning of globalisation" — 45 minutes of audiovisual spectacle in the "carrousel of knowledge"

When not listening to the various speakers, you can stroll down European Workers Lane and have:
Fun with Karl and Leon

Passing under a German "Workers of the World Unite" sign (and in front of a guy who seems to have escaped from Columbine) is the Trotskyists' answer to Disney's electrical parade.

Wait a minute. That guy on the right (on the right?!): what is that T-shirt he is wearing?

Arlette, perennial candidate for the presidency of France, asks the famous author of La Bannière étalée to pose with her.
