The taxi drivers strike back

Yesterday the taxi drivers were on strike (“en grève”). I caught this scene while walking back from the RER (which, along with the métro, wasn’t affected as far as  I could tell).

Apparently, they’re not too happy about Uber. I’ve used both, as well as zip cars and even a private rental–I’ll happily seek out the best deal for our needs.

I didn’t see anything like this picture below today, but you can read about it at The Guardian.
