It's a National sport...

We all know that there are regularly strikes in France, but it’s hard to say whether it is because French people complain more than other people, or because they are less afraid to fight for their rights.

One thing is certain though, French people are adamant about saying what they think and are quick to complain when something doesn’t make them happy.

Today I actually saw it printed on a billboard in front of the City Hall and it made me double-take.

Parisians, let's talk about your rights!

Bienvenue dans le pays de la liberté d'expression.

In French freedom of expression is defined as the the individual's right to state the product of his/her intellectual activity towards his/her entourage.

In English it signifies the right to articulate one's opinions and ideas without fear of government retaliation or censorship, or societal sanction.

Need I say more?
