This demonstration on Saturday was demanding more psychologists to work in schools to help school leavers decide on their next step. It was organised by the communist Trade Union (CGT) and the left-wing school teachers union. People had travelled from all over France to attend with several thousand participating. There was even a band or two on floats to provide the music.
FH was busy describing the importance of the right to demonstrate in a democracy to Jack. Elizabeth just said, "These people are nuts."
