The action continues hot and heavy throughout France where Besancenot's Boyz on the extreme-Left are doing their best to keep urban violence on a slow burn.
200 rioters faced off with police in the city center of Lyon and the UMP Party HQ in Villeurbanne was torched. One riot policeman was injured in the Grande-Borne in Grigny (sinister suburban shithole) where small mobile teams of rioters played cat-and-mouse with police.
In Paris, a group of 150 rioters attempted to gain access to the Place de la Bastille but were blocked by riot police. A larger group of 200-300 regrouped later on and gained access to the center of the Place. Riot police sealed off the surrounding streets to prevent looting.
