Manif Pour Tous (or is it contre tous?) in Paris Today

Populist anger against government, globalization, and just about anything else you can think of is coalescing around anger at gays and a supposed pro-gay anti-family agenda. We have heard the same diatribes in the USA, but they may prove more dangerous in Africa, the Caribbean, Russia, and, yes, even in France.

Crowds pouring into the Esplanade des Invalides as the Manif pour tous begins

Don't know if these two were for demo, against, or just trying to get away, but liked their style

Such excitement listening to the speakers at Denfert Rochereau

The faces and the flags. (The one in black and white is the flag of Brittany, a bastion of conservative Catholicism.)

The last French flag heads home along the banks of the Seine, with the Sacré Coeur in the background
