In France, the long arm of the law more often than not turns a blind eye to protesters – even when they're damaging other people's property (or indeed their own).
“How do they get away with that!” is how many foreigners react when they see the French mount one of their classic Gallic protests which often involves burning, blocking or bossnapping.
And that's exactly the reaction you'll have when you look at the images below of recent militant strike action by various groups of French protesters.

French farmers protesting against falling food prices descended upon two Spanish wine trucks and emptied their contents onto the road earlier this week.
French police were at the scene, but “allowed the demonstrators to act with impunity”, the CETM, which represents truckers, said in a statement.
François Hollande where are the fucking police??? is it legal for your people to attack visitors? Get your ass to the airport. Wtf???
