in the line of fire
In the time that I was there I witnessed countless marches or manifs. It's almost like a national passtime. Everyone (students, nurses, museum workers) would go and march in the street for almost any cause (better benefits, higher salaries, opposition to adding the words "hot dog" into the academie francaise).
One doesn't witness a rally everyday in the U.S., though. Not unless it's something really big - like the RNC in NYC.
One would then imagine that I was pretty shocked to see this sight on Monday when I schlepped all the way downtown to P & S Fabrics to buy a little something for this surprise.
They were rallying for immigration rights. To find out more, go here.
