Inside MoDem

Thanks to a blog reader (h/t FLN), I was given a tour of MoDem's headquarters today. As you can see from the photo, things are pretty quiet at HQ while the party rethinks its strategy. Meanwhile, down the street, at the Assemblée Nationale, a phalanx of flics in shoulderpads and flak jackets and protected by plastic shields faced down a "mob" of about 50 oystermen, whose slogan was "de vrais huîtres, de vraies aides," while another group protested a proposed airport in les Landes by playing songs of the Resistance.
